The Regional Championships will be held on Saturday 17 and Sunday 18 February 2018, at Sydney Olympic Park Athletics Centre.
You have automatically qualified to compete if you came 1st to 6th in a final at Zone in December, and you are U8 or older.
You may have qualified as an extra to compete at Regions - this decision is based on your performance and based on the performance of the NE Met Zone athletes. The list of Ryde athletes who have qualified to attend the Region Carnival is posted here. Please check this list to see if you are one of the Ryde athletes who has qualified to Regions, and to see whether you have qualified in more events than you expected!
Parents are required to assist at the carnival. The roster still has vacancies. Families who are not performing a chief’s job at region need to add their name to the roster. The roster can be found on the Noticeboard outside the clubhouse on a Saturday morning. Please add your details to the roster now to avoid being given a timeslot which may not be suitable for you.
The Region Carnival commences at 8am on both days and first marshalling will commence at 7.30am. The program for both days is now available. Events can not start before these times, but may start later. Please look carefully at the program and be sure to arrive in plenty of time to find parking (can be up to 10 minutes walk to the track from the carpark) and to get your child to marshalling which occurs at least 20 minutes prior to the event.
Uniform must be complete. Shorts or compression shorts must be PLAIN BLACK, without stripes, logos etc and must finish above the knee. Other compression shorts may be worn under the PLAIN BLACK shorts. Shirts or singlets must bear the individual McDonald's registration number with FULL RED BORDER showing, sponsor's patch and age patch - they must all be in their correct positions and clearly visible. If any of these items is not in place, please fix it to avoid being sent away from marshalling at the Region Carnival. Please click here to view the Ryde Athletics Centre Uniform Requirements.
