Printer-friendly version

It is the policy of the ACC that students competing in ACC sport must be under 19 years of age as of 31st December. Students who have turned 19 years of age are not permitted to participate in ACC sport. It is also ACC policy that student participation is limited to "secondary school students" and that the minimum level for participation is enrolment in Year 7. Schools may apply for exemption to this policy but only under certain conditions.

Age Cut Off Dates

As of 2015 all ACC carnivals will 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 new school midyear start age which was introduced for students born in 1997.  The new 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.
