Awards and Progress to State Championships

END OF SEASON AWARDS

The following system is used to calculate points for end of season awards:

  • 3 points for participating in an event, plus
  • 4 points for coming 1st, 3 points for 2nd, 2 points for 3rd and 1 point for forth for each event, plus
  • 6 points for achieving a PB (Personal Best) in an event, or 3 points for equalling a PB. The first time an athlete does an event each season will automatically be a PB.

If an athlete can’t compete on our Friday night competition because they are away at another event representing our club (e.g. State Multis) they will be awarded points to compensate them for this. The points will be determined by calculating the average points per night across the season.

At the end of the season the top placegetters in each age group will receive an award. The age managers will also present an age managers award. All athletes who attend the presentation will receive a medal.
