WEEKLY COMPETITION POINTS
Each week every athlete's attendance is recorded and one (1) point will be awarded for each event contested.
Points are also awarded if an athlete improves upon their personal best. Personal Bests (PB) are awarded three (3) points.
Further points are awarded depending upon where an athlete finishes in each event (Final result across the age group - not the heat result):
- First place 7 points
- Second place 5 points
- Third place 4 points
- Fourth place 3 points
- Fifth place 2 points
The total of these points determines the end of season Age Champion for each age group.
Competition points will be awarded for each event every Friday with the exception of those weeks which are programmed as non-points weeks.
WEEKLY PB AWARDS
Each week any athlete who achieved PB's in all of their events the previous week will receive a PB Award which is presented at the Friday Muster.
