For aspiring athletes Regional Championships is both a fun and challenging experience.

The Regional Championships is an individual competition for all the Athletes in the Met North Little Athletics region. The Regional Championships are open to all athletes in the U7 to U17 age groups. Almost all events offered at City North (plus Walks!) for an age group are open for competition at Regionals. Progression for most track events for U9+ is Heats to Finals.

U9+ Athletes who place in the first 3 places in an Event final are awarded with medals. Younger athletes receive a participation award.

U9+ Athletes who place 1st to 4th in a Regional Event Final are also automatically eligible to progress to the Queensland State Championships in March. An athlete who competes in a Regional final and achieves the Queensland State “Qualifying Performance Level” are also eligible to progress to the State Championships. Under 13 and Under 15 athletes may be further eligible to compete at the Australian Little Athletics titles
