Athletics New Zealand is excited to support Athletics Australia's new competition structure where they have integrated their Junior and Senior Championships and Combined Event Championships for 2017. The Championships will feature as an eight day festival of athletics running from 26 March through to 2 April 2017 to be held at the Sydney Olympic Park.
Athletics New Zealand High Performance will be sending a management team to the Australian Championships in order to assist those Youth and Junior athletes in the P2P Programme who wish to travel to Sydney for the competition.
To read the tour information for Youth and Junior athletes on what's available, what steps to take next etc, please click here.
Any Youth and Junior athlete outside the P2P programme who is interested in attending, can also express their interest and will be considered if we are able to manage the total numbers.
You can also attend the Championships (any age group) outside of this arranged structure. Please see the note below on how.
For senior athletes, we will also have some coach and physio support available for those competing in the competition. Further details on this will follow.
Athletics Australia has released an Event Matrix which can be downloaded here. The draft timetable will be released soon. No qualification standards have been released yet, however we will publish them on our website once we receive them.
Note: For all athletes wishing to enter the Australian Championships (Youth, Junior and Senior categories) you will be required to do this through Athletics New Zealand i.e. no longer directly through Athletics Australia. Further information on how this will be managed will be released in December.
