CFA has once again been invited to participate in the Australian National Fire Cadet Championships (AFCCs) being held at Myuna Bay near Lake Macquarie in New
South Wales, during the September school holidays.

CFA has competed at the AFCCs since they began in 2007. This biennial event is open to Junior/cadet members of emergency services from across Australia and will give our CFA participants an excellent opportunity to build nationwide networks, learn from interstate peers, and participate in a program than enhances the engagement and recognition of Junior members.

CFA will be taking two teams of six Junior members from across the state. Those selected will fly to Sydney on Monday 2 October 2017. The following day the team will travel to Myuna Bay for the Championships which will run from Tuesday 3 to Friday 6 October. The team will return to Melbourne on Friday 6 October.

In addition to the 12 Junior members, the CFA teams will include three Junior leaders and one CFA staff member.

CFA will cover travel costs including flights, activities, accommodation and meals while in New South Wales. Team uniforms and CFA PPC will be provided. Participants will need to arrange and pay for their travel to and from Melbourne Airport, take spending money with them, and buy four pairs of woollen socks.

We are seeking applications from eligible Junior members aged 14 to 15 and Junior leaders.
