Youth State Championships

YOUTH STATE CHAMPIONSHIPS  

Traditional Zone and Regional Championships have been cancelled this season due to Covid-19, however, there will be State Championships held for eligible athletes. 

Under 13 to Under 17 will be classified as “Youth State Championships” which will be held on 27th-28th March 2021 at Sydney Olympic Park Athletics Centre. 

 

QUALIFYING STANDARDS 

For athletes interested in entering the Youth State Championship, athletes must meet minimum qualifying times and measurements (“qualifying standards”) for each age group and events. 

Qualifying standards must be met from competition nights at centre level being our centre or when visiting another centre or any Little Athletics NSW competition.  

If the standard is achieved in an event outside of a Little Athletics NSW competition, then it must be achieved under the Little Athletics specifications e.g., weights and heights and when competing in their own age group. 

Meeting the qualifying standard does not guarantee entry into the Championships.
