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 16 & 17 November at Sydney Olympic Park Athletic Centre (SOPAC).  Entries are by centre only (NOT TEAM) and will close at the LANSW office on Wednesday, 30 October.

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.
