The Summer Carnival aims to give all registered athletes in U9 – U17 age groups the opportunity to take part in a large-scale competition, without any of the pressures associated with a Championship.  The main purpose of the day is for athletes of all abilities to have an enjoyable day’s competition and foster new friendships.
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 Gift Races are also included in the program.  The first placed athletes in the U9 – U17 age groups are offered an opportunity to compete in a handicapped race using starting distances calculated on each competing athlete’s 100m times.
Additionally it allows the athletes of the U13 to 15 age group to register performances that the State Team Selectors may need to refer to later in the season when selecting the State Team.
All LAQ registered U9 – U17’s athletes.
Note: LAQ registered athletes must wear the approved LAQ Centre uniform
