Year 4-6 Athletics Carnivals

Year 4-6 Athletics and Met North Track & Field

Our Year 4-6 students commenced their athletics unit this week.  Over the coming weeks students will develop and refine fundamental movement skills required to perform specialised moment skills required for running (sprinting / middle distance), jumping (long jump / high jump), throwing (shot put) and relays (circular / shuttle).

The Year 4-6 Athletics carnival will be held on the following dates

Friday 26 April, 11:35-2:50pm (800m / 200m Events)

Thursday 2 May, 8:50-2:50pm (Sprints / Long Jump / High Jump / Shot Put / Relays)

For 2019 only, there will be no North West District (NWD) Track and Field Trials (previously held over two days at Arana Hills). This is due to the decision by School Sport Australia to hold the National Championships for Athletics in the Northern Territory, requiring State, Regional, District and School Athletics to move carnivals forward to the first part of the school year. 

Students will need to meet the Met North Regional qualifying standards before being nominated for the Met North Trials.  Please be aware that selection in the Met North Regional team is not automatic after nomination. If a student meets the qualifying time or distance in a discipline, they will be ranked against all students in the North West District for their gender and year of birth.  Only the top four students from the North West District Schools will be eligible to compete at the Met North Trials. The top four students in each discipline will compete at the Met North Regional Trials, being held over three days at the University of Qld, Monday 3 June - Wednesday 5 June 2019. 

For the 100m and 200m events only, The Gap State School will nominate students to compete at the NWD Sprints Run-Off on the 10 May at Arana Hills.  This is due to many school ovals not having an accurate 100m or 200m track.
