Under 12 and Under 13 LAACT athletes, who are Dual Registered, can compete in the Under 14 age group. If athletes are only registered with LAACT, their State Championships will be conducted at the LAACT U9 to U13 Championships held on 18th to 19th March 2023.

The entry fee for these Championships is $26.00 for the meet.  Athletes will see a fee of $26.00 for each event that they enter but the system will then limit the payment to a maximum of $26.00.  For athletes who have taken out an Athletics ACT All Meets package, entry is free.

Please note that entries submitted via the On-Line system must be paid by credit/debit card.   If you do not have a credit/debit card, fill out the online entry and submit, then contact the Athletics In The ACT Office to pay the entry fee before the entry closing date and time.  If the entry fee is not paid by the close of entries, the entry will be deleted.

There are no on-day entry for these Championships.

If you are a registered athlete with Athletics in the ACT, including Registered Little Athletes, ACT Dual Registered Athletes, and athletes only registered with Athletics ACT, you should login to the system first. The Login button is at the upper right of this screen.

If you enter by using your National ID, Surname and DOB, you will be matched to the correct registration type but your other details, including the Club/Centre you are registered with, will not be displayed - they are still matched to your entry.

Athletes will only see, and be able to enter, events being offered for their age and gender.  As an example, a non dual registered LAACT athlete will not see or be able to enter events such as Pole Vault or Hammer.

Entries close at 4:00pm on Monday 20th February 2023.  (No entries will be accepted after this time under any circumstances).  Do not leave doing your entry to the last few minutes as the portal closes at the scheduled time and will cut off any "in-progress" entries at that point.
