Each year, the Australian Little Athletics Championships (ALAC) are conducted on behalf of Little Athletics Australia (LAA) by one of the Little Athletics Associations affiliated with LAA. In 2024 Little Athletics South Australia will be hosting these championships.
The Team will comprise of up to 150 athletes in the U13, U14 and U15 age groups. LASA will be offering a full team experience for selected athletes in 2024. This means all athletes and managers will accommodate together for the duration of the event, which will take place from Friday 26th – Sunday 28th April 2024. No athlete will be allowed to stay with a parent, unless necessary for Multi Class athletes. There will be no exceptions to this.
Athletes must satisfy the following criteria in the year of selection.
For U13, U14 and U15 athletes competing in individual events selection will take place based on results from the 2024 LASA State Individual Championships, which will be held at SA Stadium on the 23rd – 24th March 2024. Athletes MUST attend these Championships if they wish to be considered for selection in individual events.
For U15 Combined Event athletes, selection will take place based on results from the 2024 LASA Combined Event Championships, which will be held at SA Stadium on the 24th – 25th February 2024.
Generally, the U13 athletes will not be selected for one event only, therefore, should endeavour to qualify in the maximum number of events at LASA State Individual championships to increase their opportunity of selection in the State Team.
With all age groups, a maximum of 2 athletes per event will be selected for individual events.
The cost for athletes to be part of the 2024 LASA State Team will be between $1200 – $2000. This covers their accommodation, ground transport, meals, uniforms, and team camp costs.
We will continue to update our members as more information becomes available.
Please contact the Office on 08 8352 8133 if you have any questions.
