ZONE RESULTS & REGIONAL QUALIFIER NEWS
Congratulations to all our athletes for an amazing Zone Championships, held at the Sydney Academy of Sport, Narrabeen, last weekend!! Approximately eighty U7-17 athletes from NDLAC participated in events, with many PBs and some great results competing against other Centres in our Zone - Hornsby, Mosman, Manly Warringah, and Kuring-gai. We hope you all enjoyed the weekend and are proud of your efforts.
Thank you to every parent / guardian that came and supported NDLAC and helped out on the officials and assistant roster. NDLAC is well known for filling its duties without any need for the Zone Coordinator to name and shame us via the microphone for gaps on the day ….. unlike some other Centres! Special mention to Heather Shepherd, our Centre Championships Coordinator for her tireless efforts leading up to and over the weekend, also the Silver family for covering multiple jobs, and to Gail, Janelle & Adelle for your help at the check-in desk.
Here is a link to the full results from the weekend. To clarify the selection process for Region Championships:
The first 6 athletes automatically qualify for Region
The next best 4 placements are chosen on results compared with the other Zone in our Region.
Therefore, if you placed in the top 6 in an event overall, you have qualified for Region! If you placed in the top 10, you have the potential to be chosen for Region, and we should know the results shortly after this coming weekend when Northern Met hold their zone championships (watch this space!). 3 requests on this:
If there is an athlete who contested a final or finished in the top 10 in an event at Zone who is unavailable for Region on 9 and 10 February, 2019, please let us know ASAP
Please check results and also registration numbers - let us know of any changes that were missed over the weekend. Particularly of athletes who were in the top 10.
Please let us know if there are any results that may be different to what you believe they should be.
We highly recommend as many athletes as possible join in the Zone carnival in future years. The facilities are fantastic, the spirit of competition is great, and many of our athletes achieve PBs and all-time best results.
How to order uniforms
For those who have yet to organise uniforms, here is a reminder on what to do.
Try on sizes at Little A’s this Sat (from 8am to start of the meet, and then again at the end of the program). Then, go to the following link to order and pay for your uniforms online. Don’t be concerned when it flashes up “Out of stock” – when you get to checkout it shows you that it is a pre-order. Orders placed after 30 Sep 2018 will be shipped to families direct.
Athletes can wear what is comfortable in the meantime, once again, don’t forget to pin your rego # to your tops!.
Don’t worry if you still have a uniform from last year that fits, we are allowed to continue use of the old uniform in parallel with the new one through seasons 2018/19 and 2019/20. We have some old stock on sale for super special rates! Beyond the 2019/20 season, you are still welcome to wear the old uniform for club meetings, but will be required to wear the new uniform for representative carnivals (Zone, Regional, State, State Multi, State Relay, etc).
