IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR ALL COMPETING ATHLETES – Online Entries

Dear Athletics SA Community,

This post is to inform you of some important changes to Athletics SA track and field competition registrations. Commencing from the Distance Night on 31st October 2013, Athletics SA will begin using its online pre-registration system for events. 

In order to enter distance nights and Interclub events for both “base rate” members and “summer pass” members*, you will be required to enter online before 3pm the day prior to the event. If you have any questions about this process, please contact the Athletics SA office on 83543477.

Entries will still be taken on the day but will be charged at a flat rate of $20. This will apply to all athletes, even those that have purchased a summer pass.

* Please note that Little Athletics dual registered participants have a summer pass.

ONLINE ENTRIES MENU 
To make it easier to find and enter events online, we have created a dedicated “Online Entries” menu on the Athletics SA website. All online event entries can be accessed from this page.  To visit this page, click here

Online entries for events will be added progressively throughout the season as the systems are built.

SEED TIMES / DISTANCES 
Athletics SA conducts seeded competitions. To assist in the seeding process, you will be asked to enter a recent time or distance for the event. Please enter your season’s best time in the correct format to ensure that your entry is seeded correctly.

SCRATCHINGS 
Athletes who enter online and subsequently decide not to compete must scratch from their events by completing the form below and handing to the Athletics SA Competition and Events Manager at least one hour prior to the start of your event. Scratching can also be made by emailing your name, competition number and the events you wish to scratch from to events@athleticssa.com.au. Email scratching must be received by 9:30am on event day. Failure to scratch from an event will incur a $5 fine, which must be paid prior to competing in the next competition. A scratching form is available for download on the Athletics SA website.
