Keep your eye out for the call for expressions of interest by LANSW to compete in the trials for selection into the Trans Tasman Challenge Team touring New Zealand in January 2015.
LANSW has a long standing arrangement with Athletics New Zealand and each year a team of U11 and U12 athletes from NSW and ACT compete against New Zealand in the Trans Tasman Challenge. Every second year our athletes travel across the Tasman with the New Zealand athletes coming to Australia in between. The Tour promotes a positive educational and cultural exchange through athletics. The 2015 Trans Tasman Tour will be the twentieth tour conducted by LANSW since 1978 and will involve a team of 89 athletes.
There are a number of carnivals throughout the 10 day Tour culminating in the Trans Tasman Challenge Match. Each athlete must participate in 4 events.
