Please sign in at the Technical Information Centre (TIC) located near the 100m start line at least 15 minutes prior to your allocated roster position.



Late Entry Portal (NOW CLOSED)

The full list of closed events are available on the page linked above. Late entries are permitted only where a position is available - this means for events where lanes are full, or have large entry numbers in field events, no late entries will be accepted.

Late entries are now open online, and will close at 12pm Friday. From there, late entries will only be accepted from 4:30pm at the TIC Tent on Thursday 22 February and 90 minute prior to the first event for subsequent days. Athletes (or a parent/guardian/representative) must attend in person to submit a late entry and late entries are on a first come first serve basis. Please also note a late entry fee of $40 per event applies.



Entry is open to all current Athletics West members (Little Athletics and Senior/Strive members) within the following age groups (see age groups below).

Athletes do not need to qualify to enter this event, so long as they are current members, of the appropriate age and for High Jump and Triple Jump, can meet the minimum starting heights/mat. In addition:

  • Athletes are not permitted to enter the Hammer Throw, Steeplechase or Pole Vault unless they have competed in these events prior
  • Athletes must be turning 14 years of age by the 31 December in the year of competition to compete in the 2000m or 3000m Steeplechase event
  • Athletes must be turning 15 years of age by the 31 December in the year of competition to compete in the 5000m or 10,000m Race Walk
  • An athlete can compete in only ONE UNDERAGE GROUP PLUS OPEN, for each event/discipline, if the timetable permits. They may change age groups for different events but not for the same/similar events (e.g. 90mH/100mH). For example, an athlete cannot enter the Under 18 Long Jump and the Under 20 Long Jump, but could contest the Under 20 and Open Long Jump where the timetable permits.

Entries close midnight Thursday 15 February 2024. Late entries will open by close of business Wednesday 21 February 2024.



The birth date calculation is as at 31st December 2024, as per the details below. For example, athletes who turn 14 by 31 December 2024 are considered Under 15 athletes and therefore cannot compete in Under 14 events.

*Athletes are permitted to compete in an age group event and open categories, where minimum age requirements do not apply. Further information on entry eligibility will be provided in the Rules & Regulations for the event.

Para events are conducted as multi-class events, using the Athletics Australia baseline scoring system with each age group (Under 15, Under 17, Under 20 and Open). Para athletes must have a State level classification to compete.

Events have been scheduled within the Draft Timetable with all age groups together, but dependent on athlete entry numbers, age groups may be run within one race/event or with the relevant able-bodied athlete age groups.

Athletes will have the opportunity to specify their discipline (ambulant or seated/wheelchair) on entry.



All athletes are required to check in for their event via the Technical Information Centre (TIC) no later than one (1) hour (90 minutes for Pole Vault) prior to the advertised start time of their event but are encouraged to check in at their earlier convenience. Check-in is only required for the first round of each individual event (not any subsequent rounds, including finals).

There will be a call room in operation for all age groups and events. 

Athletes must report to the Call Room at the CALL ROOM ENTRY time listed below.

Where an athlete fails to report to the call room prior to the last athlete crossing the Call Room departure line, then the athlete shall not be permitted to join the event - view the Rules & Regulations for further information.

Athletes competing in hurdles will be permitted to warm up on the back straight prior to their event, so long as there is no interference with track events.



Site Marquees Map

We ask that each Centre bring their Coles and Go For 2&5 marquee as per the attached map, to provide enough shade for athletes, officials and volunteers throughout the competition. If your Coles/Go For 2&5 marquee is damaged, please bring a plain marquee in it’s place. Marquees can be dropped at the stadium on Thursday afternoon (during the stadium opening hours 3:00pm - 7:00pm), on Friday between 10:00am - 5:00pm, or on Saturday morning prior to 8am.



In the event of a competitor entering two events which overlap in the program, the competitor must inform the official when reporting for the first event. It MAY be possible for the competitor to compete in the second event as well, however a trial (jump or throw) can only be held during its designated round. Track will always take precedence over field events.



IMPLEMENT CHECK IN: A reminder that personal implements must be submitted to Technical at a minimum of one hour prior to the event start.

Javelin - We encourage athletes participating in javelin to submit implements at least 90 minutes prior to the event to ensure sufficient time for multiple submissions. Athletes should also ensure javelin implements are not covered in dirt prior to check in.

Discus – Athletics Australia have provided a directive from the national Technical Committee that relates to the last paragraph of TR34.1, where by manufacturer stickers and stickers put on implements in the past by Technical Judges should be removed. If you are submitting a personal implement into the competition, please note as a national permit meet, this will be implemented. Athletics Australia have advised the same protocol will be in place for Athletics Australia Tour Meets and the Australian Championships.


In line with the new World Athletics Rule Change around Shoe Compliance, Athletics West will be enforcing and conducting the event under World Athletics rules for Under 20 and Open events. All athletes will be required to complete the online Shoe Declaration Form prior to competing.



All athletes must wear the correct uniform; Club athletes must compete in club/centre uniform and independent athletes in the Athletics West independents top.

All athletes will be provided a custom competition bib for this year's championships. These will be available to collect from the Athlete Check-In tent upon arrival for your events or in the Athletics West office in the lead up to the event. Athletes who are not wearing their official competition bib will NOT be permitted to compete.

Please note competitors are not permitted to compete in the WA State Team uniform.
