The winter Lightning Carnivals are held at the Year 7, 8 & 9 levels and involve modified winter sports. The carnivals are run during Term 2. Schools have shown a tendency to involve their full year groups for the Year 7/8/9 carnivals. However, if a school chooses to involve a portion of that group, participation is still highly encouraged. All options carry the same responsibilities with regard to staffing and supervision.
In 2018, the carnivals will involve Year 7 students based on a stand alone day. Schools will also be able to then select which day they wish to nominate for the Year 8/9 carnivals.
Year 7- Monday
Year 8/9a - Tuesday
Year 8/9b - Wednesaday
Sports currently offered at the winter carnivals are:
Boys: Soccer, AFL, Rugby Union
Girls: Netball, Soccer
Mixed: Hockey, Touch, Frisbee
