The State Multi-Event Championships are held on the first full weekend in March each year.
The 2018 State Multi-Event Championships will be held in Wagga Wagga on Saturday & Sunday, 3 & 4 March 2018.
First event each day will be at 9am, with first call at 8.45am. Athletes participate in ALL of the events on offer for their particular age group. Performances for all events are allocated points, based on the LANSW Multi-Event pointscore system. The points are then added together to determine final results.

As usual, LANSW will require parents to act as Athlete Controllers (which is similar to centre age managers) at the State Multi-Event. There will be up to two (2) Athlete Controllers per age group and gender (eg. Under 9 Boys Blue, Under 9 Girls Pink, Under 10 Boys Silver etc). Click HERE to access the Athlete Controller memo. Groups without Athlete Controllers (Parent helpers) will not be permitted to leave the Meeting Point areas if they don't have an Athlete Controller. If you are able to assist, please contact Diane Levy via email firstname.lastname@example.org.
LIST OF COMPETITORS will sent to all athletes who have entered. This will show the age group and colour group allocated to each athlete.
