Rules

Click here to view the competition rules.

 

Event Descriptions:

 

Backward overhead shot put throw

Athletes throw Weight for age

 

Athletes will get 3 attempts each. Top 8 get additional 3 throws in reverse order 8th to 1st

 

Furthest throw wins over the 4 rounds

 

Throw technique

Athletes begin with Shot Put in both hands while stand on the stop board, back facing the landing area.

 

The athlete then proceeds to launch the shot put backwards. The athlete is allowed to leave the stop board they are standing on and can “fall” into the landing zone during the throw. This WILL NOT result in a foul.

 

The throw will be measure from the closest edge of the stop board to the landing area and from the area where the Shot Put first impacted the ground.

 

Normal Shot put sector areas will be in play and any shot put landing outside this area will result in a foul.

 

 

Scissors only High Jump

Completed as a regular high jump competition but only the scissors technique will be allowed to be used by the athletes in this competition.

 

Aggregate Long Jump

This Long Jump Competition will be performed over 4 rounds, with the total distance over the 4 rounds from each athlete added together to give a total distance. This is how the final results will be compiled.

 

Each round will be a little different, as each round will have a specific starting point. The 4 starting points are as follows:

 

Round 1: Standing long jump

Athletes will start from the point where the run up meets the sand pit and perform a 2 legged jump into the pit. No more than 50% of the athlete’s foot will be allowed to hang over the edge of the runway. The jump will be measured from the edge of the runway to the next closest from where the athlete lands.

 

Round 2: 5m run up

Athletes will all start from the same run up point which will be measured and marked with tape across the runway prior to the commencement of the competition. This distance will be measured from the edge of the pit backwards up the runway.

 

As this competition does not have a specific board to jump off, each athletes jump will be measured from where they take off. There will be an official stationed near whose sole purpose is to find the exact take off point from each athlete so the jump can be measure. The athletes jump will be measure from the point where they take off, to the point where they land in the pit as per normal long jump rules. The official stationed on take-off duty will have final say on the take off point from the athlete. A sand area will be used to assist the jumps official to the exact spot where the athlete has jumped from

 

Round 3: 10m run up

 

Round 4: 20m run up

The competition will end after all athletes have completed their 4 rounds. Once all rounds have been completed, the officials will add together each athlete’s attempts to find the final result.

 

A foul will only be given when an athlete takes off from the sand in any of the rounds. All attempts must be taken from the runway.

 

 

The Eliminator 8x400m (Entries capped at 14 at the discretion of event director)

 

Starting off with a full field of 14, athletes set off for a 400m rep. When crossing the finish line, the last runner/s (depending on the lap) will be eliminated.

 

Each 400m will be run on a 2min cycle. Time will start when the gun is fired, and the gun will be fired every 2 mins till the race is finished.

 

Athlete elimination order is as follows:

Any athlete false starting will be instantly disqualified. If any athlete is subsequently disqualified, the race will continue till 3 athletes are left, and that will be the final rep.

Grass Games is off and running – Saturday 21st November

NOVEMBER 27, 2015

 

The former number one tennis player Ivan Lendl once said “grass is just for the cows” when he could never win a Wimbledon title. Well we at UTS Norths can say that grass provided the perfect surface for the inaugural Grass Games at Rotary Field last Saturday. Not only did we provide a different surface from the more familiar synthetic tracks, the program was quite different with some odd distances like the 150, 300 and 600 metres but also some quirky events such as the “eliminator” event and some field events like the scissors high jump and the backward overhead shot put. To top it off, all of the track events were held in a clockwise direction.

 

The event was organised and conducted by Athletics NSW who provided the technical officials. These included club members Peter Higgins and Nancy Lloyd who wore their ANSW hats on the day. Also involved were the host clubs UTS Norths (mainly led by Sally Richardson) and Northern Suburbs Little A’s. Norths Little A’s provided the timing gates so all performances were electronically timed under the supervision of committee member Danny Vaz. They also supplied a number of tents on the ground. The idea of this meet actually came from Matt Lynch who is the former Assistant Competition Manager of Athletics NSW. ANSW had a gap in their summer program so Matt made an approach to the UTSN committee to conduct the meet. The committee was happy to be on board so the inaugural Grass Games became a reality.

 

UTS Norths president Andy West was delighted that the Mayor of Willoughby Gail Giles-Gidney accepted the club’s invitation to attend the meet. The Mayor said that she enjoyed watching this fun meet and she was delighted to present a medal to the winner of the feature event – the Eliminator. The event commenced with 14 athletes including the only female athlete - UTS Norths member Deborah Drennan. Each runner ran a 400 lap and last one or two were eliminated after each lap. The first two eliminated were the popular masters runners from Hills club – Noel Wright and Bob Warmoll. The event involved an interesting display of tactics as the leading runners were able to coast if they could see that they were safe from elimination. However after only two minutes rest between runs, it became a true test of endurance especially as the leading four ended up running 7 x 400 metre runs. Finally it was down to the last four runners including our own Fudge Atshan. Fudge ran really well but was unable to catch Rhys Gillon from the Illawong club.

 

After some tough competition, many athletes made use of the catering so thank you to Bart Steanes and Ashley McMahon for running the BBQ, Karen Jones who ran the canteen and not forgetting Brian Hamilton who was the car park attendant.   

 

All in all, it was a successful and enjoyable day for all concerned. Thanks to all of the volunteers from UTS Norths and Norths Little A’s especially Sally Richardson who did the major part of the planning in consultation with Brent Haywood from Athletics NSW. Of course a big thank you to Athletics NSW and Brent but special mention also to Richard Batterley who did a superb job as the ground announcer is keeping people informed on what was going one during the meet.
