Athletics Australia has announced Sydney as the host venue for the 2021 Australian Track & Field Championships, taking place from April 12-21.
Registrations will open in February 2021 and close at 9am the Monday following Queensland State Championships. To simplify processes Queensland Athletics will move away from the previous two stage process of Nominating and Registering and trial a one stage Registration process.
IMPORTANT - DO NOT complete Registration if you believe you might qualify in another event. Once you have registered for one event, you CAN NOT add another event. NB: Registering for Nationals without meeting qualification standards will result in a NON-REFUNDABLE AA Entry Fee ($30) as well as $30 Administration/Transaction fees. If you are unsure about these critical notes please call Qld Athletics on 07 3343 0900 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Draft Timetable - TBC via Athletics Australi
Uniforms are all ordered online through the Queensland Athletics website, all orders need to be completed by the Monday 29th of March in order to be received on time for the Championships.
Queensland Athletics will not offer Accommodation packages in 2021.
Combined Events Championships
The 2021 Australian Combined Events Championships (U15-U18) will be held in Victoria on the 23rd and 24th of March, 2021.
Athletes can acheive qualifcation for this event by placing in the top three at the 2020 Queensland State Championships or through achieving the qualifying standard (TBC via Athletics Australia).
Should the current capacity permitted for NSW (and therefore SOPAC) be reduced, the following may be implemented, pending the level of restriction imposed and associated risks:
• Spectator restrictions
• Timetable changes across sessions and if absolutely necessary, days
• Events relocated to a secondary venue
• Tightening of qualification standards
• Postponement or cancellation of Championships
Therefore, it is imperative that all attendees (athletes, families, coaches and officials) are strongly encouraged to only book refundable travel.
