How do the Leagues work?
You do not have to pre-register for the competition - simply turn up at least 1 hour before your first event and register with our club official (at the DSD flag) to receive your Age Label.
Once you’ve registered and received your Age Label - you can compete in any or all of the events scheduled for your age group.
Points are awarded to the top 6 athletes in each event and the top 6 athletes in each age group with the most accumulated points over the 4 Leagues are awarded a trophy – so obviously the more events you enter, the more chances you have of accumulating points.
1st 7 points
2nd 5 points
3rd 4 points
4th 3 points
5th 2 points
6th 1 point
The Leagues are a great opportunity to try new events and to get some competition practice before the upcoming Dublin T&F Championships.
Please arrive at least 1 hour before your scheduled event, remember times are approximate and event can start up to 45 minutes earlier than scheduled.
Please see attached for League 1 schedule.
Note: without volunteers and officials these competitions cannot take place - please let us know if you are available to volunteer on the day. As always we endeavour to minimise time officiating by spreading the work among many – it is much appreciated if you could make yourself available if asked to help on the day.
