The Regional Championships for the 2017/18 season will be held on Sat 3rd & Sun 4th February at The Ridge Athletics Track, Recreation Drive off New Illawarra Rd, Barden Ridge, the home track of Illawong Athletics.
The full 2017 Region 8 Program can be found here for your reference as the 2018 program will be slightly different.
Balmain is in Region 8 which is made up from two Zones: Inner City and South West Metropolitan.
Qualification for the Regional Championship is via performances at the Zone Championship.
Starting lists and athletes who have qualified for the Region 8 Championships can be found here after the completion of Zone.
Important updated information regarding Regional can be found here closer to the time. Below is the note from season 2016-17 for your reference:
In preparation for the Regional Championships the club will organise coaches in various events on set days and times.
This will be added to as coaches become available so please check for updates in December/January.
U7 athletes that competed at Zone do not progress to the Regional competition. U8 athletes compete at the Regional Championships but do not progress beyond this carnival.
The first two placegetters (U9-U17) in each event at the Regional Championships will automatically progress to the State Championships at Sydney Olympic Park Athletic Centre, on the 17, 18 & 19 March 2017. Little Athletics NSW then selects the next best eight clear final performances from across all of the Regions, subject to qualifying standards for some events, to make up to a maximum of 24 athletes in each event.
The parents of all competing athletes MUST commit to undertaking a rostered duty at the Regional Championships.
