Specifications and Age Groups 2024/25

Published Fri 28 Jun 2024

These specifications will unify the way the sport will run in NSW, outlining the age groups that an athlete can participate in, as well as the weights, heights, and distances for each age/gender group.

This task has seen us work to combine the age and specifications settings from two organisations, with the aim of simplifying the system for all members from grassroots participants through to national competitors.


We will see the following:

  • A single age group setting for the entire athletics season for all members

  • A single set of specifications for each age group

  • Specifications for junior athletes aligning with end-of-season national championships

  • Little Athletics age groups running from U6-U12

  • Junior athletics memberships from U14-U20 to align with end-of-season national championships

  • A simplified event grid searchable by an athlete’s year of birth
