2024 Summer Carnival

The popular Summer Carnival is back for another year, this year it will be conducted on the 7th January 2024.

With 475 Athletes registering to compete at the 2023 edition we are looking for our biggest and best carnival ever as we aim to reach 500 entries and make it one of the biggest events on the Little Athletics NSW Calendar.

Entries are now opened for the 2024 January Carnival via Results HQ (please ask your centre to open Nominations) or you can download the official entry from below and email it to us at lilac_carnival@outlook.com

Carnival Information

  1. The Carnival starts at 9am and there is no specific times for events
  2. The Carnival will not be cancelled and will be run in all weather conditions (subject to LANSW Guidelines)
  3. Not all events are catered for, therefore athletes have the option to go up an age group if the event is not offered in their own age group and the specifications and rules do not change- eg if an Under 9 wants to do the High Jump but there is no High Jump in their age group they are allowed to compete in the Under 10’s High Jump, there wil be no Under 9’s High Jump on the Program and athletes and parents have to listen to the event call for the Under 10’s – Enteries via results HQ will automatically have the option to go up an age group.
  4. Some events maybe combined if numbers are low in certain age groups, but athlete will still be awarded medals for their age group.
  5. The carnival is run by parent volunteers and we are looking for parent helpers to be age managers on the day, If you want to be an age manager please email us at lilac_carnival@outlook.com.au
