Note: MM to J athletes may choose to compete in an older age division, however, if they so choose, they must compete in that division for all events and for the duration of the Games with the exception of relays.

For relays only, younger athletes may move up to an older division for that event only (i.e. Pee Wee can move up into a Bantam to fill a team).

Please see the charts at the bottom of this page which outline specific events offered for each age group.

Open registration - no limit on the number of participants per region per individual and relay event.

Hurdles: Hurdles will NOT be offered 

Family Relay:  (4x100) Must be at least 3 members of immediate family (any age and gender).

 

Rules and Regulations:

1. International Association of Athletics Federations Rules apply unless otherwise stated.

2. All participants must be registered by their Regional Director prior to the registration deadline.

3. Athletes will not be allowed to register on site.

4. Athletes are required to participate in the events they originally registered with. No athletes will be allowed to change their events the days of competition.

5. Competitors are allowed a maximum of any 5 individual events plus 1 relay, plus the family relay.

6. Every athlete must be able to produce appropriate identification at all times.

7. Participants in all races should report to the start line 20 minutes prior to their event starting time indicated on the schedule. Any competitor not on time for their race will be automatically scratched.

8. Heats (where numbers warrant) will be held in 50m, 100m, 200m and hurdles. If 7 or fewer athletes are registered in an event, the event will be run at the time allocated for its final. All other races will be timed finals.

9. Participants in all field events should report to their event site 20 minutes prior to their event. Any competitor not on time for their event will enter the competition as per rules of that event.

10. If you have a track event and a field event at the same time, report to your field event and tell the Head Official that you also have a track event. When you return to the field event, you will continue in that event in the round that is currently in progress (competition order can change). If the event is completed by the time you return, you will not be allowed to compete.

11. For the purpose of scoring points for your region, Athletics is considered a double sport. The men and women’s results will contribute separately to your regions’ aggregate point total.

12. Only the region name must be on the registration form for relays. On the day of the event, names of relay runners will be submitted by 12:00 noon.

13. No event will start earlier than the posted time unless all competitors are present and agree to start early.

14. Where the number of entries in a track event suffices, heats will be timed with the 8 fastest runners from all heats combined advancing to the finals competing for first to eighth place. The runners with the next fastest times will advance to the consolation final competing for ninth to sixteenth place.

15. All athletes must wear proper footwear while competing.

16. The Southern Alberta Summer Games has a Zero Tolerance Harassment Policy. If a competitor, coach, parent, or spectator is abusive in any way towards officials, other competitors, or volunteers, they will be immediately ejected from competition.

 

Registration Deadline:

Registration Deadline as designated by the Regional Director.

All registrations are done through your Regional Director, who will determine the Regional Deadline. The

registration fee must also be submitted to your Regional Director. Signed consent forms must

accompany the waivers.

No late registrations will be accepted.

Events will be cancelled if there are one or less individuals or teams registered. Should any event be

cancelled due to lack of registrations, the athletes being affected by the cancellation will be given an opportunity to re-register in another suitable category provided that event is scheduled to run.
