About Us

Athletics West is the governing body for athletics in Western Australia, delivering programs and services to conduct, encourage and promote the sport within our State. 
In July 2020, Little Athletics WA and Athletics WA became Athletics West, forming one organisation with the common vision of enabling West Australians to engage with athletics in meaningful and positive ways, and offering opportunities for more people to become involved, and stay involved with our sport. 
Athletics West delivers a diverse range of opportunities, from inclusive programs for both recreational and elite athletes to education and development for coaches and officials and community engagement initiatives throughout Western Australia. 
Athletics West is the member association for Athletics Australia and Little Athletics Australia and works closely with state member associations around Australia, Masters Athletics WA and other key sporting bodies.
