Event dates for the 2020/21 McKinnon Shield are now available on the events page (click here)

There are 10 rounds for the McKinnon Shield in 2020/21 season. These 10 meets are all being held at Herb Towers Track, Mt Smart Stadium.

To compete at a McKinnon Shield you must be 12yrs old as at 31st December in the year of competition e.g.

  • To compete at the five meets prior to Christmas you must be turning or already be 12yrs of age on the 31st December 2020
  • To compete at the five meets after Christmas you must be turning or already be 12yrs of age on the 31st December 2021

For example – I am turning 12yrs old on the 1st January 2021. I cannot compete at a McKinnon Shield meet until after Christmas as before Christmas I am still only 11yrs old as at 31st December in the year of competition (2020).

These dates are set by World Athletics.

World Athletics & Oceania Athletics Permit Meets

Oceania Athletics is pleased to announce the One Day Meeting Calendar to be conducted in the Oceania Region in 2021.

The Continental Tour and Area Permit Meetings are the pathways to qualification for Major World events, and in 2021, that is the Olympic Games in Tokyo.

Oceania Athletics recognises the importance of giving athletes the best opportunities to prepare for 2021 and part of that is to publish the calendar.

The world we live in, especially in Oceania, is challenging and can present obstacles to staging athletics competitions.

We are continuing to work with our Member Federations, Meeting Organisers and World Athletics regarding the differing circumstances and regulations with Covid-19.

Currently, there are Meetings not listed, due to travel and border restrictions, and we are working with the Organisers and Member Federations to ensure there are further opportunities closer to the Area Championships and the close of the qualification window.

Should there be any further changes or alterations to Meetings they will be published via the Oceania Athletics Website and Social Media channels.
