I am not a member with an Athletics NSW club, can I still nominate for the Athletics NSW team?
If you are not a member, you can still nominate. However, if you are selected in the Athletics NSW team you will need to register with a club in order for your position in the team to be confirmed.
If I place first, second or third at the NSW Cross Country Championships and achieve an automatic qualification, do I still need to nominate?
Yes, all athletes wishing to be selected MUST nominate, regardless of whether they have automatically qualified. If you do not nominate, you cannot be selected.
If an athlete who is selected in the team declines their position, will the next athlete be offered that position?
If an athletes declines their offer and does not confirm their position in the ANSW team, we will offer their position to the next eligible athlete up until the deadline for registrations. After this time ANSW will use its discretion to replace any further withdrawals.
Can I compete for both Athletics NSW and NSW School Sport?
No, unfortunately you will need to pick one team, but at the end of the day you will be representing NSW either way.
If I am selected, what do I wear?
All official representatives in the Athletics NSW team will be required to compete in the Athletics NSW state team uniform. More information about how to purchase a uniform will be sent to athletes who are selected in the team.
So once I nominate, that's all I have to do?
Not quite. Athletes who are selected in the Athletics NSW team will be notified via email on Tuesday 17th July, and will be sent a link to complete their event registration. An athlete's place will not be confirmed within the team until this registration is complete.
Is there a team levy and entry fees for this event?
Yes there will be an entry fee (set by Athletics Australia) and a team levy (set by Athletics NSW) to cover Administration costs, team management services etc.
