Christchurch Earthquake, South Island and North Island Secondary School Champs

1 March 2011 3:52pm

On behalf of the members of above associations and all the members of the NZ Secondary Schools Athletics Association the NZSSAA Executive members extend our deepest sympathy and our support to all of those who have suffered as a result of the devastating earthquake in Christchurch on February 22nd. In particular we are thinking of our athletics friends and associates who have lost family members or have had their homes and livelihoods destroyed around them. We ask all who are involved with our sport to find ways of assisting the recovery of the people of Christchurch by helping in whatever way you can to help overcome the impact the earthquake has had on their lives.

As a consequence of the damage to the QE2 stadium track and facilities and the surrounding area the South Island Secondary School Athletics Championships have shifted to Timaru. Another problem for Canterbury has been the severe disruption to normal school programmes and there will be great difficulty in holding local championships or determining who might be selected to compete at the South Island championships. School Sport Canterbury is working on ways to overcome these difficulties.

The North Island Secondary Schools Athletics Championships will be held at Porritt Stadium in Hamilton. The order of events and the instructions to competitors are posted below and the information to regional team organisers will be sent out through the RSD’s on 7 March.

Invitation, Scratchings and Young Olympians

8 December 2010 10:17am

Please remember that scatchings from track and field events for athletes wanting to reduce the number of events they are competing in but not withdraw completely close tonight. It would also be appreciated if athletes who will not now be competing at all were scratched so that we can produce competitor lists that are as accurate as possible.

NZSSAA and the Wanganui Organisers regret to announce that, due to the resurfacing of the Cooks Gardens Track, there will be no Young Olympians Coaching Camp in January 2011. There is a possibility of something later in the year but that is yet to be confirmed.

Definite and Possible Guideline Programme Changes

1 November 2010 11:46am

These changes are now confirmed.

The possible heats for JG/SB 3000m will swap with the possible heats for OG/OB 2000m on the Saturday following positive feedback for that change. If 3000m heats are held they will be at approximately midday and any steeplechase heats will be around 7.00 pm.

A request has been made to have heats and semis for the JG/JB 800m on the Saturday and just the final on the Sunday as occurred last year in Timaru. This would mean the heats of the 800m being held in the morning where the 1500m is currently placed, the 800m heats becoming the semis and being held a little earlier in the afternoon and the 1500m heats being held late in the afternoon.

A request has been made to have the SB javelin switch with the SB Hammer on Sunday. This is a simple shift and does not require any other events that might conflict with these events being changed. Feedback is asked for on these 2 requests please over the next 2 weeks to oe@nzssaa.org.nz

Concern has been expressed that the JG Long Jump will not be over before the SG Triple Jump is timed to begin forcing that event to be held into a head wind, assuming the long jump competitors have a following wind and that there will be wind at that time. 2 possibilities are easily available to us if necessary. The first is to delay the start of the triple jump until the long jump is concluded or begin the triple jump into the same pit as the long jump is nearing completion. The pit is wide enough to accommodate 2 events at the same time and there are 2 run ups available.
