General Information

  • Schools will have an allocated area for their competitors in the main stand. Parents and spectators will have their own viewing area in the main stand. Parents can assess throwing and jumping areas by walking around the perimeter of the track. At NO times should parents be on the track, centre of the track, marshalling areas, muster areas or finishing line
  • A first aid area will be clearly located trackside. We will have emergency transport on stand-by should a serious incident occur
  • Please ensure competitors look after their belongings as Garden International School will not be responsible for any items left behind once we leave the stadium
  • Please remind all athletes and spectators to use the rubbish bins provided around our venues
  • In the event of thunder and lightning, events will stop immediately and everyone will make their way to the stands and stay there until it is safe to resume

4 x  100m Relay (A Only) Javelin
  • Schools should enter two athletes, A and B, (with A being the better athlete) in each event. NB in the event of a school only being able to field one athlete, that competitor is, by definition, the ‘A’ competitor
  • Each competitor may compete in a maximum of 3 track / 2 field or 2 track / 3 field events. The relay will count as 1 track event
  • If competitors are entered in more than one field event taking place simultaneously, the judges may allow them to participate in an order different from that decided upon prior to the competition. High jump must, however, take precedence
  • If all athletes are present, in throwing or jumping for distance, no competitor is allowed to have more than one attempt recorded in any one round of the competition. However, if an athlete is timetabled for more than one event at a time, they may take their attempts back to back (except for high jump)
  • In the field events each competitor will be allowed at least one practice attempt
  • Once the competition has begun, competitors are not permitted to use the runways or take-off areas for practice or warm up purposes, nor are they permitted to use throwing sites for practice trials, with or without implements.
  • We will keep to IAAF rules, which can be found here unless guidelines here with the variations stated below:

Field

  • Students may enter a maximum of 3 field events
  1. Long Jump

Maximum 3 jumps allowed. In event of a tie, the next longest jump determines the winner. If an athlete fails to record a legal jump, he/she will be awarded no team points.

  1. Triple Jump (6m limit to run up)

Maximum 3 jumps allowed. In event of a tie, the next longest jump determines the winner. If an athlete fails to record a legal jump, he/she will be awarded no team points.

As we are using a limited run up, there will be tape at 5m and 7m which will replace the wooden jumping baord.

  1. High Jump (Maximum 7 Jumps)

Recommended starting heights (Girls = 1.10m / Boys = 1.20m)

Coaches may request a lower starting height but need to inform the meet director prior to the start of the competition.

The height the bar is raised between each round will also be geared to the ability of the competitors. The competitors shall be informed of this before the competition begins. Competitors may commence jumping at any of the heights above the minimum height and may jump at their discretion at any subsequent height.

The height of the bar will go up in increments of 5 cm until such time there are only 3 competitors left and at which time the bar will go up in 3 cm increments.

Elimination will be after 3 consecutive failures (although they do not have to be at the same height).

After the competitor has won the competition and still has jumps to take, the height to which the bar is raised shall be decided after the judge of the competition has consulted the wishes of the competitor.

Ties for first place only shall be decided by counting back. In the event of a tie the winner will be (reference the IAAF Handbook).

1) The athlete with lowest number of jumps at that height.

2) The athlete with the fewest number of failures up to and including the last height cleared.

If there is subsequently still a tie for first place the jumpers move back to the last height which those included in the tie jumped at one attempt

If more than one jumper involved in the tie is successful the bar goes up until there is a result.

If there is still a tie for first place jumper move back to the last height which those included in the tie jumped at one attempt

If an athlete fails to record a legal jump, he/she will be awarded no team points.

  1. Javelin

Maximum 3 throws allowed.  In event of a tie, the next longest throw determines the winner. If an athlete fails to record a legal throw, he/she will be awarded no team points.

  1. Discus

Maximum 3 throws allowed.  In event of a tie, the next longest throw determines the winner. If an athlete fails to record a legal throw, he/she will be awarded no team points.

  1. Shot

Maximum 3 throws allowed.  In event of a tie, the next longest put determines the winner. If an athlete fails to record a legal throw, he/she will be awarded no team points.
