Age Championship Nights
A separate program is used for the three rounds that contest the centre’s Age Championships. On these nights we will compete in carnival mode. This means that boys and girls track races will be run separately.
We ask all parents/carers to assist us on these nights by toning down the coaching or directions on the night. Each season we aim to find an Age Champion for each age group, and therefore we need to be stricter when our young athletes foul at their field events. This is only for Age Champion nights.
As track events are run separately, we can expect to run a little bit longer on the night, however some age groups will only be doing four events instead of their usual five per night. Distances for discus, shot put and javelin are measured after each throw — no markers are used.
Walk races will have four officials judging on the track, one on each bend. Times and results for these races will be available the following week. This is a judged event and therefore we can expect to have some of our athletes disqualified (DQ) on the night of walks.
Please note: Dates for Age Championship Nights are subject to change due to weather and other events. Please check your email in-box and our Facebook page for any last-minute updates and changes.
