Zone Carnival – December 2016
The Inner City Zone Championships will take place at ES Marks Athletic Field, Kensington (near Centennial Park) on the 10th & 11th December 2016
Zone Championships are conducted in each of the 24 Zones throughout the State. Inner West is in the Inner City Zone along with Eastern Suburbs, South Eastern, Randwick-Botany, Canterbury, Balmain and Tigers Wests.
Event entry is by athlete application. Athletes in the U7-U17 age groups are able to participate.
Inner West is able to enter 5 athletes per event in the U7-U12 age groups. If we have more than 5 nominations for the same event in each age group, priority will be given based on performances throughout the season. No event entry limit applies in the U13-U17 age groups.
Please note every competitor at Zone championships, must have full club uniform with correct patches attached. This includes:
- plain black shorts (above the knee with no obvious branding)
- an age patch on the left hand side of the chest or shorts
- a Jetstar patch on the right hand side of the chest
- a registration number in the centre of the singlet or shirt
- a centre number in the middle of the back or for those wearing a crop top this can be on the shorts. Centre numbers are available from the canteen
Please ensure all uniforms meet the above requirements as these are strictly enforced and athletes will not be able to compete if their uniform is incorrect. If you are unsure, please check with your Age Manager or a member of the committee.
The first 6 placegetters in our Zone, within the U8-U17 age groups, automatically progress to the Regional Championships, along with the next 4 best qualifiers across the combined Inner City and Southern Metropolitan Zones. U7 athletes do not progress past the Zone Championships. This season our Regional Championships will be held at the end of January and the venue is yet to be confirmed.
There will be a $10 per athlete levy that is payable when you submit your nomination form. This helps to cover the cost of hiring the venue which is split between all the participating clubs.
The parents of all competing athletes MUST commit to undertaking a rostered duty at the Zone Championship. Zone is a massive program and the events simply cannot take place without the help of parents and carers.
Events commence at 8:30am each day with a marshalling call for the first events 15mins prior to this.
When the forms are released a copy will be attached here. Please complete a separate form for each of your children who would like to nominate. This form is to be returned to the canteen (along with your $10 per child entry fee). Following this we will confirm which events your child has been selected to compete in.
Also attached will be a table showing which events are scheduled for each day of our Zone Championships. Please select your child’s events based on availability for either or both days.
