Where: Sydney Olympic Park
When: Friday 23rd to Sunday 25th March 2018
The State Track & Field Championships are the culmination of the track & field competition season. (SeeConditions of Entry to SOPAC). Athletes in the age groups U9 through to U17 are eligible for this event. Qualifying to State is via performances at each of the Regional Championships
The State Track & Field Championships will have up to 24 competitors in every individual event
The 24 competitors have been determined as follows: -
Automatic Qualifiers (up to 16 competitors across the eight Regions)
- First and second place from each of the eight Regions
Additional Performance Based Qualifiers
- Up to eight additional competitors from across all Regions.
To determine the additional performance based qualifiers, all athletes (from finals) after the automatic qualifiers, across all Regions, will be collated and the best eight determined. Where there were equal performances for the 8th position, all athletes on that equal performance will be excluded. (ie. Some events may have less than eight additional competitors).
There are now qualifying standards for the 1500m Walk (12 minutes), 3000m Run (14 minutes) and High Jump (athletes must have cleared the state starting height for their relevant age group at region to progress. The starting heights can be found in the Rules of Competition). Athletes who cannot complete their events within these time/height limits at the regional carnivals, irrespective of placings (including auto qualifiers), will not be considered for progression to the State Track & Field Championships.
The additional performance based qualifiers for each of the three days of the State Track & Field Championships is posted below following the completion of all eight Regions.
