EVENT PERMIT LABELS - TRACK & FIELD

With many different track and field competitions conducted across the state, Queensland Athletics has introduced a simple labelling system to clearly identify the standard of the competition and whether performances are recognised at a State, National or International level.

Each meet sanctioned by Queensland Athletics will be awarded with either a Gold, Silver or Bronze label. These labels will be clearly designated in the competition details for each meet including websites, programs and entry forms.
 

GOLD LABEL meets are sanctioned by Athletics Australia and Queensland Athletics and hold a ‘National Permit’. Performances achieved at Gold Label meets may be recognised for the following:

  • Qualifiers for International Competitions
  • Qualifiers for Australian Championships (Open & Junior)
  • Australian Records
  • Australian Rankings
  • Qualifiers for Queensland Championships (Open & Junior)
  • Queensland Records
  • Queensland Rankings

SILVER LABEL meets are sanctioned by Queensland Athletics and hold a ‘State Permit’. Performances achieved at Silver Label meets may be recognised for the following:

  • Qualifiers for Australian Championships (Open & Junior)
  • Qualifiers for Queensland Championships (Open & Junior)
  • Queensland Records
  • Queensland Rankings

BRONZE LABEL meets are sanctioned by Queensland Athletics. Performances achieved at Bronze Label meets are not recognised by Athletics Australia or
Queensland Athletics for qualifiers, records or rankings.
