Athletics North Queensland is excited to announce the 2020 J Squad.
This squad is for athletes from 10 years to 13 years.
This program aims to recognise athletes who are achieving great results across all event group disciplines e.g. Sprints/walks, Jumps, Throws.
The J Squad is a recognition and rewards program for Athletics North Queensland athletes that have achieved high levels in all event group disciplines.
Athletes who have achieved a qualification standard in one event group discipline will be eligible to become bronze members (Eg. A running event). Athletes who have achieved the qualification standards for two event group disciplines (Eg. A run and a throw) will be eligible to become silver members. In order to become a gold member, athletes will have to achieve a qualification standard in all three event groups disciplines, being a run (walk), jump and throw
Athletes must meet the standards listed below to be eligible for selection in the J Squad:
Be a registered member of ANQ
Have met the qualifying standard for your age as at December 31st, 2020. For example. This means that if you are 10 now but are turning 11 before the 31st December 2020, then you will be in the 11 year age group and not the 10 year age group
Have met the qualifying standard during the qualification period – December 1st, 2019 to November 30th, 2020
Applications for selection in the J Squad will close on the November 30th, 2020.
- Once an athlete reaches either Gold, Silver or Bronze Membership once, you cannot reapply for that colour membership throughout the season.
Members will receive:
a letter each time they make a new event group discipline
a certificate each time they make a new event group discipline
Please note this is a recognition program and does not involve training sessions.
