Over 1700 secondary school athletes will converge on Sydney Olympic Park Athletic Centre from the 26th-29th September for the 2019 NSW All Schools Track & Field Championships; the state championships for secondary school athletes.
The event incorporates athletes from all sectors of the school system, including Government, Catholic and Independent, and has a long and rich history in NSW, being a breeding ground for many of NSW's best athletes, including Matt Shirvington, Melinda Gainsford-Taylor, Jana Pittman, and recent Olympians Dani Stevens, Fabrice Lapierre, Ryan Gregson, Annelise Rubie, Madeline Hills, Michelle Jenneke, Victoria Mitchell, Ella Nelson, Eloise Wellings, Milly Clark, Jessica Thornton and Scott Westcott.
The competition is open to any athlete currently attending a NSW Secondary School, between the ages of 12-19. There is no direct progression from a previous carnival, and no qualifying standards exist. As long as you submit your entry by the closing date, you can compete!
