Track and Field National Selection Guidelines
As it is a privilege to represent Taranaki at the New Zealand Track and Field Championships, the following guidelines are set to ensure those wearing the Taranaki Colours are in the best position to be competitive.
Performance Standards: Taranaki set their own performance standards based on what is required to be in consideration for making the finals on the track and in the field. These are posted with this guideline.
(1) Compete in at least 2 of the 3 league meets pre-Christmas.
(2) Compete in at least 2 of the Grand Prix’s/14, 15, U18 Inter-provincials.
(3) As race walking is normally only catered for at the Capital Classic then you need to endeavour to compete in this event and be consistently competing in race walking events (where practical) over January and February.
(4) Compete in the Taranaki Senior Track and Field Championships.
Disclaimer: If an athlete does not meet the Selection Guidelines this does not preclude them from entering and competing for their respective clubs at the New Zealand Championships, provided they meet the Athletic New Zealand entry requirements.
