The Summer Carnival aims to give all registered athletes in U7 – U17 age groups the opportunity to take part in a large-scale competition, without any of the pressures associated with a Championship.
Additionally it allows the athletes of the U13 age group to register performances that the State Team Selectors may need to refer to later in the season when selecting the State Team.
To foster team spirit, all athletes registered with a LAQ Centre, through their competing, will earn points towards the Competition’s Centre Weighted Points Trophy.
Summer Carnival 100m Handicap Races are also included in the program.  The first placed athletes in the U9 – U17 age groups are offered an opportunity to compete in the Handicap Races, using handicapped starting distances calculated on each competing athlete’s 100m times.
The main purpose of the day is for athletes of all abilities to have an enjoyable day’s competition and foster new friendships.

All LAQ registered U7 – U17’s athletes; and LA registered U13 – U17’s athletes may request approval for participation.
Note: All participating athletes must wear the approved Centre uniform.

Multi-Class Athlete Inclusion
LAQ registered and classified ambulant and wheelchair athletes have the opportunity to nominate in multi-class events. Classification is not applicable for participation in standard events at this competition.  All athletes are encouraged to participate and compete in mainstream opportunities where appropriate.  For more specific information regarding LAQ Multi-Class Athlete participation and rules please use this link.

Introducing the FAST Program for Tiny Tots and U6’s
FAST is a Fundamental Athletics Skills Training session designed to be run for a one hour duration utilising games and skill development activities to teach the basic, fundamental movement patterns of the events experienced in a Little Athletics competition. Each FAST session is one (1) hour long and will have one warm up activity, one running activity, one jumping activity and one throwing activity. Each of these activities are 10 – 15 minutes duration so that the athletes will experience a lot of skill development in a short amount of time.
