Is there a field limit to entries in each event at the Region Carnivals?2022-12-16T10:48:51+11:00

Absolutely not, there are no limits to event entries at regional carnivals we welcome all age eligible (U9 – U17) qualified financial members. The total number of entries in track events will be split over even (randomly seeded) timed finals (if required). All results regardless of the number will then be tabled together with the results being listed from fastest (track) / longest measured (field events). The maximum field reference only relates to the ‘State Championships’ based on results from all regional carnivals.

I am trying to login with a 2nd or subsequent athlete and the system is showing another one of my children’s DOB. Why is this so?2023-03-14T13:16:52+11:00

You most likely have another member page open in the same link within the same session – please log out of both and start over logging in with the correct credentials to the child you are registering.

I am having difficulties logging in, what do I do?2023-11-23T12:50:45+11:00

Registering for events is different to renewals for membership (where some families can register with one login / password). Each registered member has their own unique username, which allows you to register for your events in the correct age group. Please refer to your event invitation to source your username, if you cannot locate your invitation please check junk/spam mail first before requesting assistance from the LAVic Office. Usernames should always be copied and pasted to avoid text / numeric confusion.

Important: Direct contact must be made with the LAVic office: office@lavic.com.au prior to the closing time (11:00am – Monday 22nd January 2024) in order to have your entry considered. Late entries will not be accepted.
