1st Place                   = 6 Points                                  Personal Best          = 3 Points

2nd Place                  = 5 Points                                  Centre Record          = 5 Points

3rd Place                   = 4 Points                                  Equal Record           = 4 Points

Season best results are awarded for any abandoned competition night, or when athletes are unable to attend because they are traveling to an LAVic Championship event.

TRACK AND FIELD MEDALS

Medals are awarded to the first 3 place getters in each age group (U6-U16), boys and girls, for both track and field.  These awards are based on points accumulated over the season.

ATHLETES OF THE YEAR

Trophies are awarded to Junior (U6-U8), Intermediate (U9-11), and Senior (U12-U16) Athletes of the Year in both boys and girls.  This is based on total points accumulated over the season.

STAR AWARDS

Trophies are awarded to a boy and girl in each age group.  These awards are decided by Committee Members based on the athlete’s attendance, endeavor and persistence.

PERSONAL BEST AWARDS

An award will be presented to a boy and girl in each age group based on the number of personal best performances achieved over the season and if no other awards received.

Personal Best Certificates detailing their best performances for the season are provided for every athlete at the completion of the season.

"BE YOUR BEST" AWARDS

Trophies are awarded to the athletes who achieve the highest number of Personal Best performances for the whole season.  The results are weighted for age groups, because juniors, intermediates and seniors compete in a different number of events each week.

This award, above all others, celebrates what Little Athletics is all about!
