The State Track & Field Championships are the culmination of the track & field competition season.
Athletes in the age groups U9 through to U17 are eligible for this event. Qualifying to State is via performances at each of the five Regionals.
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 8 Regions)
First and second place from each of the 8 Regions
- Additional Performance Based Qualifiers
Up to 8 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 8 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 8 additional competitors).
The additional performance based qualifiers for each of the three days of the State Track & Field Championships will be posted here following the completion of all 8 Regions.
