Background of the Grade 12&13 Interprovincials

This event started in Easter 1979 when the first meeting was held in Nelson. There were only 5 teams present, but over the years it has grown to where every athletic centre in New Zealand, has a team represented. Each team consists of a maximum of 44 athletes and 8 adults. There are 11 male and 11 female athletes from each grade. (Part teams can be sent). Every athlete must be able to compete in 4 events, excluding relays. They must also be a combination of track and field events. Athletes score points for each event and this goes towards the team total. Relays are included in the overall total. The points are based on the decathlon scoring system. There are no semi-finals, finals or individual placings.
