Zone Wrap up!

The full results will be posted by LANSW  – go to http://www.lansw.com and then click on competitions and then results. In the meantime, I have reviewed the results and Terrigal-Wamberal athletes have performed exceptionally well at the recent Zone Championships. Of the 83 registered athletes, 42 have automatically qualified for the Region Championships in at least one event by receiving a gold, silver or bronze medal. Many of these athletes will qualify for more events once the additional qualifiers list is posted. A huge congratulations to all 42 athletes for these amazing performances.

Special recognition goes to a handful of athletes with outstanding individual performances through the weekend:
Ava Simos was a five-time medalist with gold in the 100m, gold in the 80m hurdles, gold in the 200m hurdles, silver in the long jump and silver in the 200m
Harry Lowbridge was a four-time medalist with gold in the 70m, gold in the 100m, gold in the 200m and bronze in the long jump
Cameron Stamper was a four-time medalist with gold in the 60m hurdles, silver in the triple jump, bronze in the long jump and bronze in the high jump
Harper Beatty was a triple medalist with silver in the 500m, bronze in the 50m and bronze in the 100m (as a U7 athlete Harper’s championships journey ends at Zone but what amazing results for a 6 year old!)

Tyla Channells was a triple medalist with silver in the long jump, bronze in the 400m and bronze in the 800m
Emmy Clark was a triple medalist with a gold in the shot put, silver in the discus and bronze in the 200m
Izabella Dunne was a triple medalist with gold in the 1500m, gold in the 1500m walk and silver in the 800m
Tobias Gray was a triple medalist with gold in the 400m, silver in the 200m and silver in the 800m
Lindsay Hallam was a triple medalist with silver in the 100m, silver in the 80m hurdles and bronze in the 200m
James Milne was a triple medalist with silver in the high jump, bronze in the 200m and bronze in the long jump
Layla Pace was a triple medalist with silver in the 100m, bronze in the 200m, and bronze in the 60m hurdles
Jess Stone was a triple medalist with gold in the high jump, gold in the triple jump and bronze in the 100m
Our junior boys and girls relays also both received bronze medals – congratulations to Tobias Gray, Jimmy Johnston, James Milne and Tyler Robson (boys) and Mieke Oosthuizen, Layla Pace, Cameron Stamper and Bethan Minor (girls). They will not proceed onto Region but ran excellent races with very little training time together as a team. Well done!

Athletes who placed fourth or fifth or beyond are also to be highly commended – our Zone is probably the most competitive in our Region so many of the additional qualifiers will be selected from our Zone. Stay tuned for those selections to be published!

And finally, congratulations to all athletes who achieved a PB and those who just generally braved the hot weekend to be a part of a fun community event – keep up the great effort!

Important Zone 2018 Information

We are looking forward to fun Zone weekend! Here is some information that may be useful:

Location

The Central Coast Zone Championships are held at the Mingara Athletics Centre from Friday 30 November to Sunday 2 December. We do not have a regular Friday night competition at Duffy’s on 30 November.

Schedule of Events

The final schedule of events is attached. Please review it carefully for changes. Due to a low number of entries in some track events, straight finals will take place – at the scheduled finals time. So, the heats for these events are cancelled.

The first field events each day are at 5:30 (Friday) and 8:30 (Sat. and Sun).

On Friday, athletes in the following events will report directly to the event at 5:30 – no need to go to marshalling : U9G High Jump, U9B High Jump, U7G Long Jump, U7 Boys LJ, U11G Javelin, U11B Javelin.
On Saturday, athletes in the following events will report directly to the event at 8:30 – no need to go to marshalling: U15G High Jump, U13G Long Jump, U15B Long Jump, U13B Triple Jump, U12G Discus, U14B Discus, U11G Shot Put, U17B Shot Put.
On Sunday, athletes in the following events will report directly to the event at 8:30 – no need to go to marshalling: U11B High Jump, U9B Long Jump, U17G Long Jump, U14G Triple Jump, U11G Discus, U15B Discus, U12G Shot Put, U14B Shot Put.

Subsequent groups need to listen for the calls and proceed to marshalling. Please note that some groups are very small and so the next event could be called at any time – you should plan to be ready to go at any time after the initial start time.

Program

There are no programs handed out. However, we will have a copy of the program – with participants allocated to heats/lanes – at the Terrigal Wamberal tent. You are welcome to have a look.

Uniform

Please make sure your athletes are in full Terrigal Wamberal uniform with age patch, registration number and Coles patch affixed in the appropriate location. Marshalling checks and will reject athletes who do not comply with uniform and patch requirements.

Marshalling

Track marshalling is located in the tent just to the right as you come into the stadium – just past the canteen. There are no set times for marshalling – events are called as the previous events finish.

Field marshalling is at the far end – keep walking past the track marshalling and all the club tents and it is in the corner (where the start of the 200s is located).

Terrigal-Wamberal Tent

The Terrigal Wamberal tent will be located outside the track opposite the first long jump pit – just a bit along from the track marshalling tent. Please check in upon arrival so that your athlete can be given their Zone Representative Shirt (a gift from the club as a reward for their participation and as sun protection) and you can receive further instruction about your volunteer duties.

Athletes and parents are encouraged to stay within the Terrigal Wamberal tent area to meet new friends, cheer on other athletes and be alerted to marshalling calls. As a reminder, this is not a “drop and go” event – if you are not rostered on for a duty, you are expected to be looking after your athlete. Committee members are located in the Terrigal-Wamberal tent at all times. If you need to report to a duty, please let one of us know so that we can ensure your athlete gets to their events when marshalled.

Volunteer Duties

All our duties are fairly easy and straightforward. If you are a Friday morning set up volunteer, please find Committee members Dave or Carmen at Mingara and they will guide you. If you are a Friday night Javelin volunteer, please report to April at the Javelin. Friday Medals set up, you will be responsible for organizing the medals for the weekend – Friday events, Saturday events, Sunday events etc. Other Friday volunteers, report to either the medals tent or the green shed (runners and results) and you will be instructed on what to do. Saturday and Sunday volunteers check in at the Terrigal Wamberal tent and you will be instructed on what to do.

Parents of the following athletes still need to sign up for volunteer duty: Emmy & Cooper Clark, Mina Humphreys, Lucey Conn, Sophie Eliopoulou, Harper & Talan Beatty, Isabel Walsh, Jess Stone, Spencer Atkins, Ally Cremer, Mieke Oosthuizer, Lilly Hofer, Thomas & India-Rose Barnett, Katie O’Mara, Gabriella Healy, Kai Bailey, Olive Erikson. You will need to sign up for duty at the Terrigal Wamberal tent before your athlete competes. Some others have signed up for duties but not enough – when you check in we will advise what else you need to do.

Weather

Please make sure your athletes have proper sun protection – there is a lot of waiting around for events and the days are expected to be warm – especially Sunday.

Food and Beverage

Please make sure your athletes stay hydrated and eat properly throughout the day. A canteen and BBQ are available – thought it is not necessarily the most nutritious food around!

Protests

It is VERY difficult to win a protest. That said, if you feel that something egregious has occured, you need to alert a committee member IMMEDIATELY after the conclusion of the event as there are only about 10 minutes to lodge a protest. No external video is allowed into consideration.

Medals

Gold, silver and bronze medals are awarded to the top three place-getters. An engraving service is available for $6 across from the information tent.

Relays

On Sunday afternoon, there are several 4x100m relays – junior girls (1 x U9, 1x U10, 1 x U11 and 1x U12), junior boys (1 x U9, 1x U10, 1 x U11 and 1x U12), senior girls (1 x U13, 1x U14, 1 x U15 and 1x U17) and senior boys (1 x U13, 1x U14, 1 x U15 and 1x U17). Participants for these relays will be selected from the field of athletes who participate in the 100m sprint at zone. Places will be offered based on times at zone – where a participate is in a lower age bracket but finishes faster than a participate in an older age bracket, that athlete will be invited to run “up” so that the relay consists of the fastest runners available. Participation in the relay at Zone does not guarantee participation in the relay at Region.

Final 2018 Zone Program

The top 3 placegetters automatically advance to the Region Championships and then additional spots are awarded to athletes based on times – so it is possible that athletes who place fourth, fifth, sixth – or even more may advance. These spots are not known until all other zones in our region complete their championships. The Region Championships take place the weekend of Feb ___. If you automatically qualify and you know you cannot make it, please let Michele Simos know as we need to notify the Region so that additional athletes may be contacted to attend.

Any other questions? Just come ask! We look forward to seeing you all there.
