Auckland Grade 7-14yrs Championships Postponed
In light of recent events with our country re-entering a Covid lockdown, our Events Committee has met (via Zoom) to discuss Auckland Champs.
Due to the uncertainty over Covid, many people still wary of venturing out in group events, disruptions to our final preparations, the size of our competition, the decision was made to have Auckland Champs postponed and held at a later date – March 13-14 at Massey Park in Papakura.
The exception being the 1500m event, which will be held at Mt Smart Stadium on Friday March 12th.
The Top 10 Competition is still currently being worked on as we work with other clubs, venues & availability.
Please know that all options were exhausted in terms of days, dates, venue availability prior to these decisions being made.
We know and understand that entries were made based on dates and athlete availability, so refunds will be made available for athletes who are no longer able to attend. Registrations will also open back up for any athlete who was initially unable to attend. Entries will now close 11.59pm Friday 26th February.
Details around refunds will follow in due course.
**Maximum of 5 events per athlete will still stand**
A roster system was put to the clubs prior to our 2020/2021 season starting. Clubs then came back with a preference, and were allocated a duty for the season. Those that did not respond were subsequently allocated a duty. The roster so far
- Papakura – Discus
- Roskill South – Finish Line
- Papatoetoe – Shotput
- Takapuna – Shotput
- Long Jump – Waitakere
- Long Jump – Pakuranga
- Medals – Avondale
All other clubs will be allocated duties once entries close, and athlete numbers are known. We have allowed enough time between registration cutoff and the champs for clubs to organise their duty. If there is a preference for a duty, please let us know so we can roster accordingly.
It is the responsibility of the clubs to ensure that adequate help is available.
We will continue to monitor the Government’s advice and any changes to levels. As a result, these competition dates are still tentative and may change again depending upon Government advice closer to the date.
