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.

How is the team selected?

All athletes are selected by their State Association. Individual entries are not permitted. The State Associations nominate the events that an athlete will contest with a view to obtaining the best results for the team. Each Association can enter a maximum of two competitors in each individual event and one relay team in each relay. No athlete may compete in more than four events, which includes a relay.

The Under 15 athletes are selected by their State Association.

If you any inquiries regarding selection please contact your State Association.
