Types of Meets

Centre Meets

These meets are the ’bread-and-butter’ of Little Athletics and our Centre meets are conducted at Jack Cook Park. 


Athletes take part in a tightly scheduled program of five events (two field, usually three track; possibly some games or fitness circuits for the younger age groups) proceeding from event to event in the charge of Age Marshals. 


Please refer to our Season Calendar for dates/times of all our meets, the program for the upcoming meet and the ability to register for a volunteer role in the upcoming meet.

Queensland Athletics (QA) Events

Toowong Harriers is a Queensland Athletics (QA) club and participates in QA Shield meets over the Summer Season and QA Cross Country events over the Winter Season.


All QA registered athletes aged 12 and up, as at 31 December 2020 (born 2009 or earlier) from all QA clubs are eligible to compete at each meet in the series and earn points for their club. Interstate athletes registered with their AA state association may also participate but will not score points. 


At the QA Shield meets, athletes will earn points for their club simply by competing in each meet in the series. After each meet, clubs will receive points for the place they achieved at the meet which will be collated into a series leader board. The top club on the leader board at the conclusion of the series will be crowned the QA Champion Club.

Please refer to the QA website for more information on the competition available and the Membership & Registration section for general QA membership information.
