State Relay Championships

The State Relay Championships is the largest event on the LANSW calendar in terms of number of competitors. As the name suggests the championships are comprised entirely of relay events. The State Relays are held in November each year. Junior athletes (U8 to U11) compete on the Saturday and Senior athletes (U12 to U17) compete on the Sunday. This season the championships are being held on the weekend of 18 & 19 November at Sydney Olympic Park Athletic Centre (SOPAC). Performances in each of the field events are allocated points, based on the LANSW Multi-Event pointscore system. The performances of all athletes in each team are added together to determine final results. Entries for the State Relay Championships are by centre only (no individual entries can be accepted).  Centres will need to submit their entries on an electronic, excel based, State Relay Entry form, which will be emailed to all centres at the beginning of the season.  If athletes are interested in entering the 2016 State Relays make they will need to advise their centre well before close of entries. Entries will close at the LANSW office on Wednesday, 1 November.
