Little Athletics Australia is proud to have Coles as their major sponsor.

Coles support our centres with equipment grants, while also regularly providing bananas and water bottles at events and competitions.

Coles Little Athletics Community Fund

Since November 2018, Coles has provided more than $1.68m in grants for new sports equipment to 376 Little Athletics centres across Australia.

Funds for the grants are raised through the sale of specially-marked chiller bags designed by Aussie kids.  For every bag sold, ten percent is directed to the Coles Little Athletics Community Fund to help grassroots Little Athletics centres.

In 2021, Coles will also donate 10 cents of every kilogram of bananas sold on National Banana Day (1 May 2021) to the Coles Little Athletics Community Fund.

Eligible Little Athletics Centres can apply for funding to purchase sports, safety and volunteering equipment that will help improve the Little Athletics experience for volunteers, participants and families, such as hurdles, high jump mats, first aid kits, modified equipment, trolleys and shade marquees.

Round 6 of the Coles Little Athletics Community Fund will open on Sunday, 1 August and close on Tuesday, 31 August 2021.

The Round 6 Application Form will be made available to download via this website from Sunday 1 August. All applicants must complete their application using the official application form for Round 6.
