The State Relay Championships is the largest event on the LANSW calendar. The championships are comprised entirely of relay events, both track and field, with either three (field) or four (track) athletes competeing in each relay event. This year the Championships will take place on Saturday, 17 November 2018 (U8-U11) and Sunday, 18 November 2018 (U12-U17) at the Athletics Centre, SOPAC, Homebush.
The final timetable of events will be found here via a highlighted link once it is released by LANSW.
The full program will be accessed here via a link to the LANSW State Relay Page upon release by LANSW.
Teams are chosen by our Championships Officer. We will be holding a Relay Selection night on 28 September. There will be a sign up for interested athletes prior to this. There are compulsory training sessions for all track teams in the weeks prior to this event.
Performances in each of the field events are allocated points based on the LANSW Multi-Event pointscore system. The performances of all three athletes in each team are added together to determine final results. Teams will only be given a final placing in the championships if all three athletes compete.
Parent assistance on the age relevant day of the State Relay Championships is mandatory and a roster will be organised once athletes are selected. Full centre uniform MUST be worn, with the age patch, Coles sponsors patch and registration number on the front of the uniform.
