Introduction /
How to Enter:
All events - both Track & Field - are “team” / relay events. Junior athletes (U8 to U11) compete on Saturday and Seniors (U12 to U17) compete on Sunday. Candidate teams will be drawn up by STGLAC based on athlete performances, and parents contacted to confirm availability of the relevant athletes to participate.

If you accept your selection into a team, it is most important that you attend and compete, as failure to do so will likely result in your team-mates being unable to compete also. Competitors must wear their full club uniform.

There is a $10 fee per athlete to enter this carnival. Please transfer this amount to St George Little Athletics (BSB: 112-879, Acc: 020 079 422) after you confirm your acceptance of a position in the team. Use Athlete Bib Number(s) as the reference.

Introduction / How to Enter:The Zone Championships - open to all athletes U7 & above - is the first interclub carnival in the pathway: Zone –> Region –> State Track & Field Championships. It is a carnival in which the clubs in the “Southern Metropolitan Zone” (SMZ) come together in competition. The best U8 and above performers at Zone will earn entry to the Region 8 Championships. (U7 athletes do not progress from Zone.) Competitors must compete in their full club uniform.

We encourage as many athletes (U7 and above) as possible to enter the Zone Championships! To enter, you must fill out and submit the Nomination form below (one per athlete) by no later than Sunday 5 November, AND you must pay the Fee and Bond amounts listed below by bank transfer.
Carnival Information:The Schedule (program) is above – both a full version including heat and lane assignments and a brief version just listing event times. 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. The document at “Information” is essential reading for every parent. The duties our club is required to fill are posted in a SignUp (link is above). Parent duty is a mandatory pre-condition for return of the Helper Bond. The times shown in the SignUp are approximate as actual event times cannot be forecast with precision. Those not volunteering to do a duty forfeit their deposit.
Fees:
Bond:
$20 per Athlete, AND
$50 per Family (refundable, subject to conditions).

Please pay the above amounts to St George Little Athletics (BSB: 112-879, Acc: 020 079 422) immediately after submitting your nomination form. [If not received, your nomination won't progress.]

Please make 2 bank transactions for your family:
- One for Fees,
- One for Bond.
Use Child Bib numbers as reference.

Note: These amounts cover the entire Zone/Region/State championships program. Consequently, they are also payable by athletes (if any) who receive an exemption from Zone.
Parent DutyWe will let you know when the Parent Duty Signup is available - probably late November.
At that time - please choose your signup duty at Zone using the "Parent SignUp" link above. [Get in quick if you want to find a convenient event at which to assist.]

Parent Helper Duty is mandatory for each Family. [Duties are not difficult and experienced persons will provide directions.] Refund of the Bond is dependent on a parent doing the required duty(s) at those carnivals in the championship program at which their child competes. (Eg.: Zone, or Zone & Region, etc.)

Note: Parents at a Duty:
- must wear enclosed shoes (no thongs, sandals etc)
- must not be minding a child
- must remain at the duty till it completes.
Entry Restrictions & Nomination FormU7s to U11s can compete in up to 4 events and U12s and above can compete in up to 6 events. The club has a quota of up to 5 athletes in each event (per Age Group/Gender) for U7 to U11 (and no limit for older Ages). We retain the right to select athletes where nominations exceed our quota.

In choosing what events to compete in, take note of the "Order of Events" document (see above) - as that will guide you as to when (ie. the day and the rough ordering) the various events will run.
