Zone Championships are conducted in each of the 24 Zones throughout NSW. Balmain is in the Inner City Zone along with Eastern Suburbs, South Eastern, Randwick-Botany, Canterbury, Inner West and Tiger Wests.
Event entry is by athlete application. An online Zone Entry Form will be sent by email and posted on our socials in November. All Balmain athletes, in the U7-U17 age groups, are able to participate if they submit an application. Athletes in the U7-U11s can compete in up to 4 events. Balmain can only enter 5 athletes in any U7-U11 event. There is no limit on the number of athletes that can compete in U12-U17 events. U12-U17 athletes are requested to enter 6 events.
Note for U7 to U11 athletes: We anticipate an over-subscription of entries in some events. Where more athletes apply than available places, selection will be at the discretion of the BAC Championships Sub-Committee (considering amongst other things athlete ranking, consistency of performance and attendance at Saturday Club competitions). The Sub-Committee will try its best to find an event for any interested athlete.
The parents of all competing athletes MUST commit to undertaking a rostered duty at the Zone Championship. The event cannot take place without the help of parents and carers.
A link to the Zone Volunteer Roster, Final Zone Program and Start Lists will be shared here when available. A Newsletter will also be sent to all competing athletes with immportant information.
Progression: The first 6 placegetters in our Zone, within the U8-U17 age groups, automatically progress to the Regional Championships, along with the next 4 best qualifiers across the combined Inner City and Southern Metropolitan Zones. Note that U7 athletes compete at Zones only; U8 can qualify to compete at Regional, but do not progress to State; U9-U17 compete at Zone, can qualify for Regional and then qualify for State.
