2019 Australian Athletics Championships Entries Open

Athletics New Zealand is excited to support the Australia Athletics Championships for 2019. This year will see a combined week-long Championships for U15 – Senior grades.

All athletes need to enter through the Athletics New Zealand online entries system. This is a change from previous years where some athletes have been able to enter directly with Athletics Australia. All entries must be done through Athletics New Zealand as the Member Federation.

The Athletics NZ online entries system is the same as the one used when registering to compete at any Athletics New Zealand National Championships. You should have your own log in and password but if you do not, you can click on the same link and it will direct you to rediscovering these details or entering your details for the first time.

It is a requirement to pay by credit card online as you enter online. If you do not have access to a credit card please contact Teams in order to proceed with your entry, though it is preferred if you use a credit card.
