Championship Events

A number of Inter-centre Competitions are held throughout the season and advertising of events will be on the Inglewood and LAWA Websites.

A condition of nomination to events is that a parent must be available for a roster. Failure to conduct a nominated roster may impact the athlete’s eligibility to nominate for future events and/or register the following season.

The Centre will promulgate Centre Closing dates for nominations. These dates will be slightly earlier than the Association closing dates to ensure our volunteers have sufficient time to complete administration required and to verify the accuracy of these entries prior to timely submission.

Late nominations will NOT be accepted. It is your responsibility to ensure your nomination is received prior to the promulgated Centre closing date.
