Championship events

Depending on their performance over the course of the season, some athletes may have the option of competing at various championship events hosted by Little Athletics NSW or Little Athletics Australia.


Zone – Hosted by Little Athletics NSW, this carnival is the major event for the North East Metro Zone, and there is one event per season.  The Zone Championship is open to all U7 to U17 athletes, but athletes must complete a nomination form if they wish to be considered for any event.

Regionals – Our athletes represent the North East Metro Zone at this event, which attracts  clubs from across the north of Sydney. Athletes are invited to attend this event based on their performance at the Zone Championship.

State – Top performing athletes from Regional Championships across NSW will have the opportunity to compete at a state level, at Sydney Olympic Park Athletics Centre at Homebush.

State Relays – The State Relay Championships is the largest event on the Little Athletics NSW calendar in terms of number of competitors. Athletes can nominate to attend and final selection will be made by the MLAC Championships Committee.
