Club Championships 2017

Dear Athletes, Parents and Carers,

After 17 weeks the 2016/2017 Little Athletics season is drawing to a close. Our final two weeks of regular competition are occupied by the City North Club Championships. Starting on Saturday and contested in Age Groups, athletes compete over 8 events (U6, U7), 9 events (U8) and 10 events (U9+) aggregating points based on places. Athletes with the highest 3 points totals in each age Group over the Club Championships are awarded medals.

Points are determined based on places. 20 points are allocated for first place, 19 for second, 18 for third and so forth. The table below summarises the points table.

If an athlete contests, but does not record a distance or height in an event, they will still be awarded with points based on a last placing for that event. Athletes who do not contest an event or do not finish will not receive any points for that event.

Personal Bests will not be awarded bonus points during the Club Championships this year.

In events which are contested over multiple heats, placings are based on the fastest times across all the event heats for that age group on the competition day.

Club Championship events are to be conducted using strict application of technique. Athletes may be disqualified in an event if they run out of their lanes, throw or jump incorrectly.

Athletes will be entitled to 3 trials in field events with 1 warm up trial.

While open to all CNLA Athletes, only Athletes who have competed in at least 4 City North Club Events are eligible to win a Club Championship medal.

If you have any questions about the Club Championships please speak to one of our Committee members, drop an email to or a chat message on TeamApp, and we’ll do our best to assist.
