U7 athletes that competed at Zone do not progress to the Regional competition. U8 athletes compete at the Regional Championships but do not progress beyond this carnival. 
The Regional Championships is scheduled to take place on 3 and 4 February 2024, at Sylvania Waters Athletics Track, 225R Belgrave Esplanade, Sylvania Waters. A list of Balmain qualifiers for the Regional Championships, the Final Program and Regional Newsletter will be shared here when available. 
A parent or carer from each family must assist during the weekend by completing at least one duty of a little over an hour. There are spots to be filled and these can be selected at a time that suits. Please follow the link to nominate a duty.
Progression: The first two placegetters (U9-U17) in each event at the Regional Championships will automatically progress to the State Championships at Sydney Olympic Park Athletic Centre on 23 and 24 March 2024. Little Athletics NSW then selects the next best eight clear final performances from across all of the Regions, subject to qualifying standards for some events, to make up to a maximum of 24 athletes in each event.
