There are multiple carnivals held throughout the season where athletes can compete against different clubs, this is a fantastic opportunity to improve skills and meet other competitors. Upcoming carnivals are posted on our Facebook page throughout the season.
Each age group has a simple structure of one Age Manager, a backup Age Manager, and at least 3-4 assistants who help with the running of each event (Recording, measuring, raking and timing). Things run smoother for groups when there are a number of parent helpers who can cover for each other.
