A parent or carer from each family is required to assist during the weekend by completing at least one duty of a little over an hour. There are spots to be filled and these can be selected at a time that suits. Please follow this link to nominate a duty.
Qualification for the Regional Championship was via performances at the Zone Championship.
Balmain is in Region 8 which is made up from two Zones: Inner City and Southern Metropolitan.
U7 athletes that competed at Zone do not progress to the Regional competition. U8 athletes compete at the Regional Championships but do not progress beyond this carnival.
The first two placegetters (U9-U17) in each event at the Regional Championships will automatically progress to the State Championships at Sydney Olympic Park Athletic Centre, on the 14th & 15th March 2020. Little Athletics NSW then selects the next best eight clear final performances from across all of the Regions, subject to qualifying standards for some events, to make up to a maximum of 24 athletes in each event.
The parents of all competing athletes MUST commit to undertaking a rostered duty at the Regional Championships.
