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 32 athletes each year to compete at these Championships. The team is made up of 26 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 Multi-Event Championships and for the Under 13’s, this must be done before the State Individual Championships.
This seasons State Team will travel to Canberra to compete in the 2020 Coles Australian Little Athletics Championships. As previously mentioned, the 6 Under 15 Athletes will be provisionally selected based upon their performance at the Little Athletics SA Toyota State Multi-Event Championships on Saturday 22nd February & Sunday 23rd February 2020. The 26 Under 13 Athletes will be selected based upon their performance at the Little Athletics SA State Individual Championships on Saturday 14th & Sunday 15th March 2020.
