HOW TO QUALIFY?
There are three ways for athletes to qualify for the Australian Junior Championships:
1. To have placed 1st, 2nd or 3rd in an event at the 2013 Buffalo Sports NSW All Schools held in October at Sydney Olympic Park.
2. Reach the entry standard within the qualifying period, as set out by Athletics Australia, which can be accessed by clicking here.
3. Place 1st, 2nd or 3rd in an event at the 2014 NSW Junior Championships.
Athletes may enter events across the different age groups; as long as they meet the age qualification and the individual event is offered in their default age group. Eg U14 athletes are not eligible to compete in the U16 or U18 steeplechase as the event is not offered in the U14 age group.
