The first four placegetters in every individual event at the Zone Championships qualify to compete in the Region Championships. These Championships are held on the third full weekend in February, and represent a much higher level of competition.
Our Region consists of competitors from the Greater North / Western Sydney. All will be vying for a place at the State Championships. U8’s do not progress beyond Regional, however the top 3 placings in each event receive medals.
Athletes from ages 7 – 17 may enter in this event that is a great time for the whole family. Athletes compete in the full range of nominated events and are awarded points for their performance in each event. Points are calculated using a modified pentathlon scoring system. The top 8 participants in each group receive an award.
Under 15 athletes have the added opportunity of being one of two boys and girls to represent NSW as multi event athletes at the National Championships.
