2018 School Carnival Season

Athletics NSW prides its self in the service of qualified officials to assist at school athletics carnivals. ANSW can provide a number of officials, along with equipment and timing technology. No event is too large or small. 

Athletics NSW can provide qualified officials to assist your carnival throughout the season in a variety of areas, including starters, umpires on the track, judges on the field and in technical areas such as the preparation of databases pre-competition (on HyTek T&F Meet Manager), results on the day, photo-finish timing systems, and scoreboard operation (SOPAC only).  Electronic Distance Measurement (EDM) is available to assist field events.

Additionally, any requests for equipment at ES Marks Athletics Field need to be submitted to Athletics NSW separate from the officials booking form.

ANSW has recently added the ability to host full/track/field permit carnivals at Sydney Olympic Park. Qualifying for permit status enables your student athletes to record performances that will allow them to qualify for national and international competitions. Another added benefit is that results will also be eligible for state and national records. In order for a carnival to be awarded permit status, certain requirements must be met. If you select to host a permit carnival, it will be our main priority with no other carnivals in the area using our officials that day. For more information on hosting a permit carnival please click here. Please note that if you wish to book a permit carnival, it needs to be submitted to ANSW by the 15th of March and it must also be held at the Sydney Olympic Park Athletics Centre. Please complete the 2018 booking form, and select the relevant options for a permit carnival.

Whilst we cannot guarantee the availability of officials or equipment for every request, we will endeavour to assist each school with their request. 

To request support from Athletics New South Wales and for more information, please read and complete the following forms and return to Ashleigh Crook at ashleighcrook@nswathletics.org.au.  ANSW will confirm the booking request once the form has been submitted.

As we are looking to continually improve the services we provide, a satisfaction survey has been developed. If you are interested in providing ANSW with feedback on your 2018 carnival experience, please click here.

Athletics NSW Carnival Permit Status

ANSW PERMIT STATUS SCHOOL CARNIVALS

With Athletics NSW being the governing body for athletics in NSW, it is also the controlling body for granting permit status for competitions. By Athletics NSW granting your carnival with permit status, it enables your student athletes to record performances that will allow them to qualify for national and international competitions. Another added benefit is that results will also be eligible for state and national records. Permit carnivals will also have exclusive access to the NSW Officials, meaning that your carnival will be our main priority on the specified date.

In order for a competition to be awarded permit status, requirements must be met. Permit status is categorised into three levels;
