State Combined Events Carnival
The State Combined Carnival is held on the first full weekend in March each year.
Little Athletics NSW State Combined Events Championship has had a name change to Little Athletics NSW State Combined Carnival, with athletes in the younger age groups U7 to U11 being given instruction/coaching during the event. Athletes in the U11 and younger will have the opportunity to learn ‘how to’ throw, jump etc during the event. A more relaxed attitude to the age groups will occur with time for instruction/coaching from the officials.
Medals are awarded to the top 3 placegetters in all age groups. Athletes in the U15 age group will be vying for selection into the LANSW State Team to compete at the Australian Little Athletics Championships, which will be held in Canberra in April 2020.
This season, the State Combined Events Carnival will be held at the brand new synthetic track at the Tamworth Regional Athletics Centre, on Saturday and Sunday, 29 February and 1 March 2020. Athletes will be sent an email when online entries open early in the new season. If centre members are intending to travel to Tamworth, it would be advisable to book accommodation now, so that they don’t miss out.
