Each year, Little Athletics SA selects a State Team to compete at the Australian Little Athletics Championships. These Championships will be held over two days (in April) and are hosted yearly by each Little Athletics State and Territory.
An independent panel selects a team of 46 athletes each year to compete at these Championships. The team is made up of 40 Under 13 athletes who compete in individual events, as well as 6 Under 15 athletes who compete in the Heptathlon.
Athletes are required to nominate to be considered for selection. For the Under 15’s, this must be done before the State Combined Event Championships and for the Under 13’s, this must be done before the State Individual Championships.
NOTE: Under 15’s will not be required to nominate for the 2021 ALAC, due to its recent cancellation. Athletes will be notified of provisional selection the week following the State Combined Event Championships still. Under 13’s will not be required to nominate for the 2021 ALAC either and athletes will be notified of their selection in the team after the State Individual Championships.
