NEWLY established Anakie and District Little Athletics Club is holding its sign-on this Sunday.

The sign-on is at 3pm at the Anakie State School grounds for Tiny Tots, aged three to four, to under-17-year-olds.

Club secretary Brooke Goodwin said the club hopes to attract children from the Gemfields and outlying areas like Capella, Clermont and even Emerald.

"Areas like that don't have facilities," she explained.

"It's a weekly run event on Sundays. It's all about challenging yourself and even if there's only one or two in an age group, they can still compete.

"It's about improving your own record each time."

Goodwin said the club was started to give kids something to do and offer another opportunity.

"If they wanted to do it and they didn't have to travel," she said.

Goodwin said the club hopes to have meets with other areas though its focus for the moment is to establish the club and see what response it receives.
