The State Combined Events Championship (previously known as State Multi-Event Championships) are held on the first full weekend in March each year.
The 2019 Combined Events Championship will be held at Barden Park, Dubbo on Saturday & Sunday, 2 & 3 March 2019. Thank you to Dubbo City Council and Dubbo Little Athletics for assisting with this event. Entry to the State Multi-Event is now open and is online only. Please CLICK HERE to register for this great event for all the family.
Entries will close on Wednesday, 13 February 2019 at a cost of $25 per athlete entry (with a late entry a week later at $50 per athlete). Usually an officials seminar is held on the Friday evening prior to the event. More information will be posted HERE at a later date.
First event each day will be at 9am, with first call at 8.45am. Athletes participate in ALL of the events on offer for their particular age group. Performances for all events are allocated points, based on the LANSW Multi-Event pointscore system. The points are then added together to determine final results.

Age Group Managers
As usual, we will require parents to act as Age Group Managers (which is similar to centre age managers) at the State Multi-Event. There will (hopefully) be up to two (2) Age Group Managers per age group and gender (eg. Under 9 Boys Blue, Under 9 Girls Pink, Under 10 Boys Silver etc). If no parent helper is available, we do allow the older age groups to look after themselves (U13-U17) if one of the competing athletes nominates themselves to look after the paperwork. If you are interested in escorting your child and their age group to their events, in the role of Age Group Managers, please read the AGE GROUP MANAGER MEMO and send your expression of interest to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please note that groups without Age Group Managers (Parent helpers) will not be permitted to leave the Meeting Point areas until they have someone to act as Age Group Manager. If you require more information please contact Diane Levy via email.
LIST OF COMPETITORS will be sent to all athletes who enter (following close of late entries). This will show the age group and colour group allocated to each athlete plus the name of the Age Group Manager. Remember that athletes WILL NOT be permitted to leave the meeting point areas if there is no age group manager.
State Combined Events specific shirts will be organised. Normally these shirts will need to be pre-ordered. Details will be advised in due course.
