*EOI date extended to Sunday 13 January
Athletics New Zealand is excited to support the Australian Junior Athletics Championships for 2019. The Championships will be a combined Junior and Senior affair, running from Friday 30 March - Sunday 7 April at Sydney Olympic Park Athletics Centre.
Athletics New Zealand will be sending two management teams to the Junior portion of the Australian Championships in order to assist Youth and Junior athletes wishing to travel and compete at an international competition. The two tour groups are aimed at the following athletes:
- Group 1 - U18 and U20 able-bodied athletes in the PPS and P2P programmes
- Group 2 - Emerging U16 – U20 Para athletes (all classifications)
To read the tour information for both groups, what steps to take next etc., please click here.
Any youth and junior athlete outside the P2P and PPS programmes who is interested in attending as part of Group 1, can also express their interest and will be considered, but not guaranteed.
Athletes can also attend the Championships (any age group) outside of this arranged structure, however these entries must be done via Athletics NZ using an online portal, the details of which will be confirmed at a later date.
Athletics Australia has not yet released a draft timetable for this competition, nor have they released standards. Once these have been published, Athletics NZ can provide further information and open it's online entry portal.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact Teams.
