Please be there on time to listen for your child’s event. There will be a first and second and final call where your child will be told to proceed to marshalling. Track events go to the marshalling tent near the tiny tots area and field events go straight to the event, unless told otherwise.

This weekend will be run under official conditions so it is the first opportunity to set some records.
 
Parents, grandparents, family and friends can come down to the field, prop up a shade or tent and enjoy the day while athletes compete. Please note: that we will need to “CHECK IN” via our Covid Safe Bar Code available at the canteen and we will all need to practice social distancing throughout the day at all parts of the field, clubhouse and bathrooms.
 

Please note:

–          Parents must not be within the round track area and must also be outside of the throwing areas, this creates the competition atmosphere that the kids will get at future Zone Championships events.

–          Parents cannot coach their kids as soon as competition commences.

–          Please be on time and please listen for the announcement of your child’s event.

We need your help with the following

–          Parent helpers are expected to assist officials in running of events when called upon.

–          Parent helpers are also needed each morning to assist in setting up for the day.

Medal day champion is awarded at end of year presentation and determined by Medal Day results. The winner must achieve a gold Medal in a Run, Jump and Throw. NSW State Multi points are used to calculate overall points. The child with the highest score is the winner unless they are a winner of another major award. For more information please visit the Centre Competition and Rules page on our club website.

The Starr Partners Medal Day is an annual two day event and our first major club championship on the season calendar. It is a private club competition where athletes compete for medal placings. Each event is managed by certified officials for that event type. It is also one of the rare opportunities for athletes to officially break club records. Club records can be found here. Under 17s compete for Under 17s Medal Day Champion which is presented at Club Presentation at the end of the season.

No entry fee is required as this weekend forms part of your registration.

For any questions please contact Championships@colytonstclairlac.com.au

Good Luck Everyone and have fun!

Message from the president 13/11/2020:

With our Medal day Weekend kicking off in the morning I thought I would go over a few things.

Tiny Tots will compete in all 6 of their events on the Saturday they will follow the instruction of their team manager and will join in on the track events when we are at that track (only one track will run at a time) It is just like a gala day where events will be called all track will marshal at the marshalling tent and all field events will be at that event. We ask all parents to remain behind he roped off area unless you are helping which we do need you to do. There is to be no running alongside your child or sibling to encourage them on. But we want you to encourage them from behind the ropes.

Except for tots medals will be handed out at the end of each event. Our podium is available for photos but we are trying to avoid crowds gathering and inadvertently breaking Covid rules.

We need timekeepers for our sprints (about 5 to 7 one for each runner if we can get it) this is to ensure each child has the best quality of timing we can give.

Our day is longer then usual so bring shade/ drinks and food. We are usually finished by 2pm.

Our volunteers are under the pump there is more to set up lots of pressure to get it right and not let anyone down and then they have to pack it all down and do it again the next day. If you are around and can lend a hand we really do appreciate it especially our kids who just want to go home at the end of a long day.

With all of that said and done Medal Day weekend is one of the highlights of our season we get to celebrate our kids giving it their best and getting some good results.
