Hobart Districts was formed in 1978 and is the second oldest Little Athletics centre in Southern Tasmania. During our 40+ years of existence we have been able to provide family based Little Athletics opportunities to thousands of 5 to 15 year olds in the greater Hobart area. Tiny tots for 3 & 4 year olds is also available. Some of these children have gone on to make a name for themselves in either senior athletics or other sports – think Lewis Powell, Lauren Jauncey, Brody Holland or Peter Street to name a few – but the greater majority have received their benefits from the friends they have made whilst they were with us, the fun that they have had, and the family experiences and memories that will last a lifetime.
During Little Athletics season 2003/2004, Hobart Districts officially adopted the Centre name “The Redbacks” and is now known as “The Home of the Redbacks”. We encourage all our Little Athletes to support the club by wearing the warm-up tops, bucket hats and caps featuring the Redback logo.
The 2019/20 season was an exciting one as we temporarily relocated from John Turnbull Oval in Lenah Valley to the Domain Athletic Centre where all athletes can use the synthetic track. With the move made permanent during the 2020/2021 season the Domain Athletics Centre is now our home.
Hobart Districts has a number of key goals which we focus on throughout the season. These are:
- The provision of family-focussed Little Athletics opportunities for 3 to 15 year olds in accordance with the rules and regulations of Little Athletics Tasmania.
- Maintaining an emphasis on ongoing participation and enjoyment
- Making active efforts to help children attain personal improvement
- Maximising parental involvement
- Optimising safety at all times
- Having fun!
We pride ourselves on being a family friendly centre and will work hard to ensure that you remain with us for many seasons to come.
