Country Champs are a great opportunity to compete against like-minded country athletes in a fun atmosphere. The comaraderie amongst athletes is always strong and a good time is always had.
There's not far to travel this year so there's no excuse not to get involved. You don't have to be the fastest or the strongest, you just need to have a positive attitude and participate! Young and master athletes are all encouaged to give it a go and compete for Nowra Athletics Club.
Athletes competing in the senior component of the Championships must be registered with the club for the 2017-18 season. Athletes competing in the Little Athletics component must be registered with a Little Athletics NSW country centre (such as Shoalhaven Little Athletics) for the 2017-18 season.
Senior club members must wear their correct club uniform. Athletes must have their Athletics NSW 2017-18 registration numbers attached on the front and back (except in jumps events). Athletes competing in the U9, U10 and U11 age groups must wear their LA uniform. Temporary bib numbers will be provided for Little A members at athlete check-in on the day.
Nowra members requiring uniforms are encouraged to come along on Wednesday night 10th January when Track and Field competition resumes and purchase the new uniform. It'd be fantastic to see everyone sporting the new design at the Championships.
Entries are $30 for the first event, and $10 for every subsequent event, with a $70 cap. Family entry is $90 for adults and unlimited children, for any number of events. Online or manual entries available through NSW Athletics or pick up a paper form at the Track on Wednesday night.
