Participant Age

A child’s age group is determined by the age as at 17 Oct 2015.  For example, if you are seven on this date, you will be Under 8.  Children must be five (as of 17 Oct 2015) to register.

Athletes must compete in their own aged group, unless granted permission by the Competition Manager.  Times and personal bests are used to calculate centre awards.  This is much easier when results are recorded in the correct group.

The table below is a tool to assist in understanding what age group is applicable for a given birth month/year. So, find the Year of Birth and the month of birth and the intersection is the Ux group your child will be in.
