Region 3 Carnival 2017/2018

Barden Park Athletic Centre, Dubbo February 3rd & 4th 2018

  •  The Top 4 qualifiers in the U8-17 age groups will automatically qualify from each Zone to Region. The next best 4 from across the Region will make up the 16 athletes at region.
  •  The Top 2 (legal) relay teams from each Zone will qualify to Region. NB There are rules in relation to Relay teams that make it easier for smaller Centres to Compete. See below.
  •  First event each day will be 8.30am.
  •  The Region carnival will be fully timed, the list of event times will be available to Centres once we receive total entries.
  •  There are some events that are covered by qualifying standards in relation to progressing to State, see below.
  • There will be NO calls for all events. Families need to know what time they need to attend the Marshalling area (Call Room – 20mins prior to published start time)
  • Electronic timing will be used on the track, by way of the Photofinish system.
  • There is a new rule in relation to U9 & U10 High jump, all athletes must jump scissor style, that means at all levels, Centre through to State a flop jump will be considered a foul.
  • Reminder that spikes can only be worn by athletes in the U11 and above age groups.
  • The usual food, drinks & coffee will be available during the Carnival.
  • As usual, parents will be required to assist throughout the Carnival.
  •  There will be a $5 Region entry fee per athlete levied to each Centre. Please, at the Zone carnival ensure your athletes are in fact competing at Region otherwise withdraw them with the official paperwork. The fee will cover Carnival costs including medals, and costs associated with things like photo finish etc.

Note: In previous years we have had an issue with athletes not turning up and some track events needing to be collapsed into a straight final. This causes a major delay when using Photo Finish so from this year, if Marshalling and the Starters deem a straight final will occur, those athletes will be marked off as present and then will return at the scheduled Final time to race the Final.
Any athlete who DID NOT attend the heat and get marked as present cannot then run in the Final.

State Qualifiers: The first 2 athletes in each event (U9-17) will qualify to the State Championships in March, but note there is now a minimum Qualifying standard for the 1500m Walk (U12-17) and 3000m (U13-17). Regardless of placing at Region athletes need to better the following time to qualify to State;
1500m Walks
U12 – 11.00min
U13 – 10.45min
U14 – 10.30min
U15 – 10.15min
U17 – 10.00min
U13 – 13.30min
U14 – 13.00min
U15 – 12.30min
U17 – 12.00min
