Zone Championships

Nominations are now open for Zone Championships. 


The Inner City Zone Championships will take place at ES Marks Athletic Field, Kensington (near Centennial Park) on 8 & 9 December 2018.
Events commence at 8:30am each day with a marshalling call for the first event at 8am.
Zone Championships are conducted in each of the 23 Zones throughout the State. Canterbury is in the Inner City Zone along with, Eastern Suburbs, South Eastern, Randwick-Botany, Inner West, Balmain and Tiger Wests.
Event entry is by athlete application.  Any athlete in U7-U17 age groups are invited and encouraged to nominate. 
It is a fun weekend where athletes have the chance to compete against athletes from other centres, cheer on their team mates and experience the Canterbury Club Spirit.

Number of events that can be entered per age group:

  • U7-U12 age groups may compete in four (4) events plus a relay.
  • U13-U17 age groups may compete in six (6) events plus a relay.

Note: We can only enter 5 athletes in each event per age group. If more than 5 athletes wish to enter an event, entry will be based on results and participation at Club-level on Friday nights. You will be contacted in this instance to provide an alternate event choice.

Events on the day: As a parent/carer it is your responsibility to ensure your athlete gets to marshalling on time. You are less likely to miss a call if you are sitting in the Canterbury seating area.

Parent Roster: You will be expected to complete a duty at the carnival, as per Parent Duty Levy requirements. Remember it is a condition of your child’s entry that you assist on one of the days. An online roster has been set up for this event.

Please note that every competitor at Zone championships, must have full club uniform with correct patches attached. This includes:
* Canterbury shorts (above the knee)
* Canterbury Club Singlet
* An age patch on the left hand side of the chest.
* A Coles patch on the right hand side of the chest.
* A 2018-18 registration number in the centre of the singlet.
Please ensure that all uniforms meet the above requirements as these are strictly enforced and athletes will not be able to compete in incorrect uniform.
U7 athletes do not progress past the Zone Championships. 1st, 2nd and 3rd placings will receive a medal on the day.
U8-U17 are able to qualify for the Regional Championships.
This season our Regional Championships will be held on 2-3 February at Illawong.
How to enter:
There will be a $20 per athlete levy that is payable by credit card when you submit your online nomination. This helps to cover the cost of hiring of the venue and associated costs, as well as a small contribution towards the supply of a Canterbury representative team shirt.
The parents of all athletes competing MUST commit to undertaking a rostered duty (approx 2 hrs) at the Zone Championship. Zone is a massive program and the events simply cannot run without the help of parents and carers.

Please note:  Zone Championship Entry is by on-line nomination only.

Event Championships is open to all athletes from the U7-U17 age groups.
