1 SAAL Programming for 2016/2017 on Thu Jul 07, 2016 2:18 pm

Earlier this week we had a programming meeting. Whilst the carnivals are the same as last season – the SAAL has made a major change to the age groups.

We are staying with Under 14’s but replacing the Under 17 and Under 20 categories with an Under 18 category.

Instead of Under 20 races, these will be replaced, in most cases, by Novice events. Where it hasn’t been changed to a novice event, it will become an Under 18’s race. Consequently there will be more Under 18 races in 2016/2017 than there were Under 17 races last season.

There is a suggestion the qualification for a Novice race be tightened – that women’s and veteran’s races be included in terms of wins in that category. For example if a female wins a Women’s 300m she is ineligible for a Novice race over 300m to 550m. Same situation if someone wins a veteran’s 300/400/550. In the past only an open win precluded one from competing in a novice race. This needs more consideration.

The three categories remain the same:
70m to 200m
300m to 550m
800m to 3200m

The Western District meet is proposed for Friday January 20th 2017. Last year the program included a 300m Under 20’s race. This will be a replaced with a 400m Novice. This should be a very good lead in race for the Camden Classic.

A Novice race will generally be non-penalty however as we have seen in recent years, if the athlete has broken the net time, the handicapper has the discretion to apply a penalty.

Tea Tree Gully is proposed for November.
