Summer Event Entry Fees 

NOTE – Refer to entry information for each competition for more information and entry conditions.

Base Membership

The BASE membership is a low-cost option for casual QA competitors, athletes that train or compete at a club level only, and for new athletes that are unsure about committing to a full membership straight away. BASE members are able to participate with no restrictions in all:

  • Club training and activities
  • Club conducted competitions 
  • QA cross country and road events
  • School based competitions

As the initial membership fee is so low, there are a couple of restrictions on BASE members as outlined below:

  • May compete in a maximum of three QA track and field competitions during the summer season, including QA Shield Meets and Queensland Championships. Higher event entry fees also apply  
  • Not eligible to compete at the 2018 Australian Athletics Championships (U14-Open).

 
Upgrades
BASE members will be able to upgrade to a full TRADITIONAL/PLATINUM membership at any stage during the summer season if they find that would like to compete in more QA competitions or continue on to the 2018 Australian Athletics Championships.

Bib Numbers

Every athlete that registers as a member of QA will be allocated cloth bib numbers which are to be worn while competing at all QA events during year. Please discard all previous QA bib numbers you may have as you will only be permitted to wear your new 2017-18 bib numbers during the 2017-2018 year (1 Oct 2017 to 30 Sep 2018).

Bib numbers are available for collection at your first QA competition. Postage of bib numbers is only available upon request (see below).
