What is the ALAC?

The ALAC (Australian Little Athletics Championships) is a two-day event held every year with all States and Territories represented.

The ALAC encompasses the Australian Teams Championships for Under 13 athletes and the Australian Combined Event Championships for Under 15 athletes in both able bodied and multi-class categories.

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.

Able Bodied: Each Association can enter a maximum of four competitors per gender (excluding Race Walk) in each individual event and one relay team in each relay. No athlete may compete in more than six events, which includes a relay. Each Association can enter a maximum of two competitors per gender for the Race Walk.

Multi-Class: Each Association can enter a maximum of two competitors per gender in each individual event and one relay team in the mixed gender relay. No athlete may compete in more than five events, which includes a relay.

Multi-Class athletes must be nationally classified to be eligible for selection. If you any enquiries regarding selection please contact your State Association.
