age groups
Age Groups

Age Groups

  • At this Junior Carnival, the age groupings will be determined on the school year of each participant for the year ending 31 December 2013.

• Age groups will be determined once registrations have been completed and we see how many from each year have registered. In most cases, participants will be competing with others in the same year as them at school. Some years may be combined depending on numbers.

• The minimum age for registration is 11.5 years of age as at 15 January 2013 for WA participants and 12 years of age for every other State.

• The maximum age for registration is 16 years and 11 months as at 15 January 2013.

  • Registrations will close Friday 15 November 2013.
  • Registrations for Carnival are online at the Maccabi website.
  • To register for Jnr Carnival, you will first need to register your child with a My Macc account if they do not already have one . This will contain basic information and a photo of your child and is required to sign up online to any Maccabi club/event in the future. (Please remember that you are registering the My Macc account and filling in the Registration Form in the participant’s name – NOT yours!)

Once the participant’s My Macc account is created you will be directed to the registration form and payment section. You will require:

  • Medical information including your doctor’s and dentist’s contact details
  • Medicare and Private Health insurance information
  • Emergency Contact Details
  • Sports Chosen
  • Credit Card details for online Payment (Other payment options are available by contacting us if required)
  • Please ensure that you and your child read through the Code of Conduct together and then accept the terms by ticking the allocated box.

Billeting is one of the highlights of Junior Carnival – meeting new friends, getting to know them and literally “living” together for a week.

Every participant from WA is asked to host at least two billets. Depending upon the numbers from interstate some people may miss out on a billet or some families may be asked to take multiple billets, if required. Under special circumstances , the two billet rule may be waived.

If you already know someone from Perth you would like to be billeted with, it is important that both you and the WA participant have this clearly marked on the application form to ensure this is organised. Confirmation from the host parent (and not the host participant) is required for the Registration Form.

Billeting will be worked out on the following priority:

- Shomer Shabbat - Glatt Kosher - Kosher -

- Allergies - Gender - Age Group

- Sport Choices

Families will be notified a few days before the start of carnival as to who their host is. This will give you time to make contact with them, to thank them and to discuss any important issues, if any, relating to your child .

community day

Community Day

Community Day has proven to be a most worthwhile cause and something that participants feels really good about doing.

Plans are underway to make the Community Day interesting, beneficial and to provide each Carnival attendee with a sense of “contributing back”.

Community Day is on the Friday of the Carnival and it is expected that every Carnival participant is actively involved and participates in Community Day.


Shabbat services at any of the Perth Synagogues is compulsory for all carnival participants. Team Management will be at all venues to take note of all attendees.

Team Uniform must be worn at Synagogue.

  • Saturday is a ‘no sport’’ day and is a chance for all participants to rest, relax and get ready for the second half of carnival.
  • No public transport is to be taken on this day – or any other day of carnival.
  • If activities are arranged for you by your billet on Saturday– please make sure all parents are comfortable with this activity.
  • After Shabbat goes out there will be a fantastic social event- so use the rest to re-charge your batteries.
