2022 Victorian All Schools Track Relay & Field Relay Championships

Date: Thursday 15th September

Location: Lakeside Stadium, Albert Park, VIC 3206

Entries Close: 11:59 am (Midday) Wednesday 7th September

Dust off the spikes and get the chalk ready. Track and Field is back…

Athletics Victoria (AV) is proud to announce our All-Schools Relay Championships for 2022.  This year we will be incorporating a multi-discipline field relay event into the existing track relay program for Juniors, Intermediates & Seniors. The new event will consist of four legs – High Jump, Long Jump, Shot Put and Discus.

Attracting teams from public and private schools alike, the Victorian All Schools Track & Field Relay Championships looks set to be an exciting day of team events across both field and track disciplines.

AV has taken the initiative to reduce all schools’ summer team events to a single day and includes field relays into the existing track relay program due to: Athletics Australia no longer holding a National School Nitro Challenge competition, school calendar impacts due to the GAT scheduling in September and lack of access to Lakeside Stadium.

(Note: The Victorian School Nitro Challenge will not be held in 2022. This is in line with the decision made by Athletics Australia to not hold the National Schools Nitro Challenge)


RESULTS

Final Event results are now published on ResultsHub and are listed under Schools Track Relay Champs

The overall Team scores for Combined (inc male, female & mixed schools), Female teams & Male teams can be found here. The overall team scores are based on the top 8 teams from each track relay and the top 8 placed teams in the field event relay.

SCHOOL HELPERS

School’s will be assigned various duties to enable the event to run successfully, and will be based off the number of teams that you submit to participate.

We are expecting a requirement of 1 helper per 4 teams entered. Roles will be assigned where possible based of the teams entered by schools.

Helpers will be requested to report to the Cathy Freeman Room 15 minutes prior to their rostered shift.


VICTORIAN ALL SCHOOLS FIELD RELAY CHAMPIONSHIP

We are excited to incorporate field athletes into our Relay offering for the first time to ensure there is an opportunity for all athletes to represent their school on the day.

The brand-new field relay will see teams of 2-4 participants across four field events (Long Jump, High Jump, Shot Put & Discus). Students will be able to compete in a maximum of two events, with participants receiving three attempts in each of the horizontal field events and for the High Jump, athletes will only be allowed to attempt 3 heights with up to 3 attempts at each height. (Modified rules due to time constraints.)

Points will then be allocated to each of the athletes based on their finishing position at that field event site.

Teams can be created in a multitude of options based on the number of students selected, although students can only compete for one team across the day. With three age groups available – Junior (U14), Intermediate (U16) & Senior (U20). Please Note: The year of births originally included in the competition rules were incorrect, with the 2006 listed for Intermediate. 2006 born athletes will need to participate in the Senior relays.
