Athletes compete in running, throwing and jumping events in a program suited to the age and development of the athlete. The focus of the athletes is to perform at their personal best. Most Centres will offer training nights focussed on skill development.
All Regions host these Region Championship events each season:
Region Track & Field
Region Cross Country
Note: Some Regions may conduct a Region Multi-Event.
Athletes may enter Region Championships, dependent on the entry qualifications having been met for that particular Championship. The Region Relays, Track & Field and Cross Country Championships are the qualifying competition for the respective State Championship event.
