AVSL PLAYOFFS ENTRY PROCESS
AVSL Playoffs entries have closed.
AVSL PLAYOFFS SCORING
To ensure a fair playing field, and to stop clubs monopolising entries, the AVSL Committee will impose a 100-point penalty on each Did Not Start (DNS) result an athlete receives for AVSL Playoffs. Athletes can avoid receiving this penalty in the following ways:
- Email email@example.com prior to entries closing at midday on Wednesday 2nd March withdrawing from the event/s you no longer wish to compete in, therefore opening up the position to other athletes.
- Provide AV with a medical certificate between entries closing and competition day (this includes requirement to isolate due to COVID – we must receive this confirmation prior to competition)
- Provide a St Johns Patient Record Form to Administration on the day of competition
- A scratching AFTER midday Wednesday 2nd March will be treated the same as a DNS
TIMETABLE & CHECK-IN
The current provisional timetable is available above.
The 200m and 800m events have been split into sections throughout the day. Ensure that you review the entry lists published above or via ResultsHub to confirm your section.
All events will be pre-seeded and athletes will only be required at their event site 10 minutes prior to the beginning of their competition. There is no check-in process for AVSL Playoffs. This has been implemented to minimise the time athletes need to spend at the event site and within the venue.
DISTANCE EVENTS – LAP COUNTERS
Walks & 3000m athletes will still be required to supply a lap counter for their events.
There will be no call room at AVSL Playoffs athletes are to marshal at the event site no later than 10 minutes prior to the scheduled start time.
CLASH OF EVENTS
If you have a clash of events, please make your chief official at the event site aware that you will need to attend another event. It is YOUR responsibility to ensure that you are at the event site at the required time to compete.
The number of relay teams must be submitted 90 minutes prior to the scheduled start time, with relay team sheets to be submitted 45 minutes prior to the scheduled start time. This is to occur at Administration located at the end of the main grandstand. Athletes must have competed in three rounds of AVSL Playoffs as well as having purchased the Individual Round Entry or have an AVSL/Max Package.
- Athletes can only compete in one relay team
- If junior and master athletes compete in the same team, they will be scored as an open team (rule 4.9.6)
- Females may run in a Male relay team, but no more than 50% may be female. The relay team will be scored as a Male team.
- Clubs that run an ineligible athlete in a relay will be penalised two (2) penalty units from its score (rule 7.3)
Relays will be marked as an invitation team until the relay team sheets are submitted. This will ensure that all athletes are eligible and that points do not need to be removed if an ineligible athlete is identified.
AVSL PLAYOFF ELIGIBLITY
To compete at the AVSL Playoffs athletes must have:
- A valid performance in the event you enter in the AVSL Playoffs
- Competed in 3 or more rounds of AVSL for any event as a scoring athlete
- Athletes that have purchased an AVSL/Max Package will not need to purchase an individual round entry.
