Cut off dates

All ACC carnivals use only one age cut-off reference date for age group classification. This is to bring the ACC age group cut off dates in line with the school midyear start age which was introduced for students born in 1997.  The age cut-off date is as follows:

ยท         30th June: for those born after 31st December 1996 i.e. born after 1996.

Competitors are permitted to compete in one age group only, for all events.e.g., a competitor who qualifies to compete in U14, but elects to compete up in U15 for his or her first event, must remain up in U15 for all other events, including relays.
