The Combined Event Championships is offered to U9 – U17’s.
The number of combined events per age group is a graduated increase to reduce undue pressure on younger athletes and encourage athlete’s development.  A strong emphasis is on the participation of children in a wider range of events, rather than the early specialisation in one or two specific events.
Additionally, the State Team Selectors will refer to the U15 Heptathlon results when selecting athletes for the State Team.
The Combined Event is considered one event; therefore, athletes failing to start or make a trial, in any of the set events of the Combined Event will not be allowed to take part in the remaining events per the LAQ Rules.
Eligibility
All LAQ registered U9 – U17 athletes; and LA registered U13 – U17 athletes may request approval for participation.
Note: All participating athletes must wear the approved Centre uniform.
Multi-Class Athlete Inclusion

Classification is not a requirement for general participation in 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.
