Regional Relays (U7-U17's)
The Regional Relays are open to all registered Little Athletics from the U7 - U17's and primarily provide friendly Regional Competition for all athletes in these age groups and in addition are the means for qualifying for the State Relay Championships. Regional track and field relays are provided for, with the track teams comprising of 4 athletes and Centre field teams comprising of nominating athletes.
Teams from the U9 - U17 age groups that place 1st, 2nd or 3rd will be eligible to progress to the McDonald's State Relays. As there are no heats or finals at the McDonald's Regional Relays, track teams are placed on best times from the timed finals. Field teams are formed and placed by combining the two best performances (distance or height) of athletes from the same Centre. Winter Centres and Centres in the Central Coast Region may nominate teams directly to participate in the McDonald's State Relays.
Each athlete may nominate to participate in a maximum number of 5 events at the Regions. For available events, use this link.
