To assist in ensuring that the carnival runs as efficiently as possible, associations can nominate staff to particular roles, so as to ensure we utilise any expertise we may have within our schools so that our carnivals are conducted as professionally as possible.  Duties include all the field events, marshalls, check starters etc
Should you wish to nominate staff in this way please indicate their preference via email to by the 31 July 2017.   This will enable adjustments to be made to the duties allocation sheets. 

CIS Secondary Athletics Association Official Duties Allocation Form is Due on – Wednesday 6 September - return to The form has been loaded under Related Documents on this page.

It is the responsibility of each association to ensure all officials and student helpers as outlined in the Association Officials Duties Form are allocated and present at the carnival. THESE ARE MINIMUM REQUIREMENTS. It is expected that officials running field events will be aware of their specific job and have had experience in conducting the event at the association level.

Teacher Officials: Where a teacher is listed on the form this MUST be a qualified teacher to fulfill the duty of care at each event. Requirements for teachers have been kept to a minimum so it is essential that those listed ARE teachers. Should an official fail to register at the beginning of the day it is the association's responsibility to find a replacement.

Students Helpers: These are essential for the smooth running of the carnival. In 2016 the St Piys X College students were outstanding.

Wet Weather

The Secondary Athletics Championships will be held regardless of the weather. Some events may be delayed or cancelled at the discretion of the Athletics committee if the nature of an event causes safety concerns in the rain.
