The Region Championships is the next level of carnival above Zone. Entry to the Region Carnival is competitive – and based on the performances achieved at the Zone Carnival. We are located in Region 8, which comprises our Zone plus the “Inner City Zone” (ICZ). The best performers at Region gain entry to the State Track & Field Championships, at which representatives from all 8 Regions in NSW compete.
As with the Zone Carnival, parents of athletes are required so support the carnival by performing a Helper Duty. Use the ‘Signup‘ link above to choose the event at which you will assist.
Kumon State Combined Carnival
This very popular carnival is structured quite differently from the Zone/Region/State parthway. Athletes participate in ALL of the running, throwing, jumping events on offer for their Age Group. Performances for all events are allocated points based on an LANSW point-score system. Points are then added together to get a total for that athlete.

Note the times in the schedule refer to the time of the event and are “Not Before” times. This means the event may run later than the time shown but will not run earlier. The event may however be “called” earlier than the times shown, and athletes need to be available to respond when the event is called.
The “Athlete Listing” lists all St George athletes entered in the Carnival together with their events and the Start Times of those events.
