To reach the State Championships is an honour in itself. It presents the opportunity to line up against competitors from all parts of NSW. The State Track & Field Championships will have up to 24 competitors in every individual event
Date: March 19-21, 2016
Venue: Sydney Olympic Park Athletic Centre (SOPAC), Homebush
The 24 competitors have been determined as follows: –
- Automatic Qualifiers (up to 16 competitors across the 8 Regions)
- First and second place from each of the 8 Regions
- Additional Performance Based Qualifiers
Up to 8 additional competitors from across all Regions.To determine the additional performance based qualifiers, all athletes (from finals) after the automatic qualifiers, across all Regions, will be collated and the best 8 determined. Where there were equal performances for the 8th position, all athletes on that equal performance will be excluded. (ie. Some events may have less than 8 additional competitors).
Under 13s have the added incentive of gaining selection in the NSW team to compete at the National Championships.
