This event involves centres from the Port Hunter Zone - Woodberry, Raymond Terrace, Newcastle City, Stockton, Tilligerry, Wallsend R.S.L., Port Stephens, Medowie, Adamstown-New Lambton and Thornton.
Tiny Tots and U/6 participate in Play Activities throughout the course of the day. Age groups in the U/7 - U/17 inclusive compete in five or six events during the carnival.
Athletes receive points for their performance in each event and the point score for each athlete accumulates to cover all events they perform in. Points are awarded based on how well each athlete performs in absolute terms. IE the faster you run, the longer or higher you jump, the further you throw then the more points you receive. Athletes must compete in every event in their age group to be eligible to win first place in their age group.
Our Club, like all clubs attending the Zone Multi-Event, is required by the Port Hunter Zone Committee to provide assistance in the running of events at the carnival. It is a condition of entry that a parent or carer of a child competing at the Zone Multi-Event MUST volunteer for at least one duty on the day of the carnival. A key point here is that the duties only involve ASSISTING. Generally you will only have to take direction from an official who will take responsibility for running the event and therefore it is not as daunting as it may otherwise sound. A full list of duties is available for download above.
The Committee reserves the right to allocate duties where the parent’s preferred duty has already been allocated to another parent.
