What is the ALAC?

The ALAC (Australian Little Athletics Championships) is a two-day event held every year, hosted by each State or Territory on a rotational basis. All States and Territories, apart from the Northern Territory, are represented at the championships.

The ALAC encompasses the Australian Teams Championships for Under 13 athletes and the Australian Combined Event Championships for Under 15 athletes.

Although recognition is given to individual place-getters, the emphasis is on team performance and the main focus is on the team point scores.
