Names of students competing outside their age groups need to be given to the Executive Officer before the event.  This assists in the scoring for Age group champions.

Each school will be required to supply 2 staff/adult and at least 4 capable students to act as officials. In addition, schools must also have a ratio of 1 staff/adult to every 20 students attending (This does not include staff acting as officials) 1 of these supervisors will be allocated a part of the venue to supervise while others are to stay with students. When not competing, students are to be supervised by their school in the stands.

1 staff member is to act as a marshal for their school at all track events.

Competitors will compete in lanes allocated (apart from the 800m and 1500m). Where possible lanes will rotate each year.  In events where there are more competitors than lanes (200m, 400m and relays), there will be 2 heats. Ribbons will be awarded to each heat, but points will be awarded to the fastest times from the two heats.

Three categories exist; Junior, Intermediate and Senior.  The Junior competition involves the 13 and 14-year age groups, the Intermediate competition involves the 15 and 16 year age groups and the Senior competition includes the 17 – 20 year competition.
