Athletics FAQ

What events do we run?

Typically the events are Sprints, Middle Distance, Hurdles, Shot Put, Discus, Javelin, High Jump, Long Jump and Triple Jump.  This varies due to age limitations.  

Do I have to be a good athlete to compete?

NO! Athletics is for anyone who just wants to get out there and have a go.  We cater for any athlete aged from turning 4 this year to 100+.  We encourage the athletes to strive to better their own PB or Personal Best. 

Is it a First, Second and Third placing system?

No.  On Club Competition days, the athlete is awarded 1 point for each event they participate in and a further 2 points if the athlete achieves a ‘personal best’ performance during that event.  Points can also be earned at Inter Club meets and Carnivals.  The points are added each week and at the end of the season the person with the most points in each age group is recognized.   Please see the Achievement Recognition page.

It is part way through the season, is it too late to join?

No!  It is never too late to join.  Just come along on on Tuesday afternoon or phone one of the contacts for more information.
