Age Groups for Athletics

The age groups for athletics are different to those used for many other sports. The youngest age that can participate in competitions is U9. This age group is for those born in 2009. Anyone born after 2009 are too young for competitions.

Here is a list to help you understand what age group your child is in:-

U9     Born in 2010

U10   Born in 2009

U11   Born in 2008

U12  Born in 2007

U13   Born in 2006

U14   Born in 2005

Your child can participate in their own age group and in the age group just above it e.g. U9’s can participate in their own age group and in U10 competitions also.
