In 2020, due to the growing number of member schools, the ACC created a J Division athletics carnival, increasing the number of carnivals to a total of ten.
This year was also the first year the ACC provided a livestream service for all carnivals. This proved highly successful, and feedback from schools was very positive. Staff and students from all metro and country ACC schools were able to watch and support their team from afar.
The ACC was fortunate to be able to host the athletics carnivals this year as COVID-19 restrictions were eased leading up to the series. Whilst there were still some protocols in place, the carnivals operated as per normal.
