Scratchings Reminder

12 November 2011 10:53am

Any athlete wishing to withdraw from an event must have their school do that through the online entries system by the time for final scratchings which is midnight Wednesday 7 December or they are liable for exclusion from the meeting. Any scratchings after Wednesday 7 December are for the complete scratching of an individual from the Track and Field Championships.

N.B. The Road Race and the Track and Field Championships are separate championships and scratching from one after Wednesday does not stop an athlete taking part in the other. Scratchings are not required for the road race unless the team manager plans to substitute a replacement runner.

Continuation of Year 9 grade at the Road Race Championships

7 October 2011 12:00am

Update: The Executive would like to thank the many people who emailed their thoughts on this suggestion, all of whom saw the advantages of retaining the Year 9 grade for the Road Race. As a consequence of this feedback we will continue to offer this grade at our Road Race Championships.

Original proposal: Feedback on the whether or not to continue with the Year 9 grade at the Road Race championships after this year would be appreciated. There has been some discussion about the generally lowish participation rate in this event and whether it would be best to revert to just having a Junior (U16) grade. This would have the effect of improving the level of competition in the Junior grade particularly in the teams races. Counter to this is the desirability of providing an introductory event that is not too daunting for our year 9 students. There are a number of other pros and cons to consider but rather than direct thinking too much the executive is interested in the thoughts and opinions of interested people who have been involved such as coaches, managers, parents and competitors. Please email your response to John Tylden at oe@nzssaa.org.nz . The intention is to discuss a possible change at our December AGM.

Please be aware that this trip will be during term one and is likely to require leave for approximately 2 weeks. Please email your applications to Geoff Shaw at geoff1332@hotmail.com with a brief resume and the names and contact details for 2 referees. Applications close on 14 October 2011.
