These are both twilight comps with timings as follows:

  • 4.00pm for gates set up

There are followed by our Centre Championships on 26 Feb & 12 Mar.

To be eligible to compete in an event at Centre Champs athletes must meet the following criteria:

  • U6-U12: Have competed in the event 3 times during the season

  • IMPORTANT Call room procedures – There will be a call room in operation. This is located at the Southern End of the grandstand (Near the 100m start line) and will be split into TWO (2) areas, one for track and one for field.
    ALL athletes are required to report into the Call Room prior to each event/discipline. The Call Entry Times at the CALL ROOM are (prior to scheduled event starting times):
    •  Track Events – 20 mins prior
    •  Field Events – 35 mins prior
  • Where a team / athlete fails to report to the call room prior to the last athlete crossing the Call Room departure line, then the team / athlete shall not be permitted to join the event.
  • It can be a long day so make sure you hydrate, have good sun protection and have a good nutrition plan.
  • Have fun and encourage each other
  • Go the ROAR!!
