There are 4 events for the Under 6 to Under 12 age groups and 5 events for the Under 13 to Under 17 age group. The events usually consist of two track and two field events for each age group.
Each competition night is a point score night. Points are accumulated throughout the season to determine the age champions at the end of the season. 1st, 2nd and 3rd place age champions are based on point score. There may also be 2 additional awards per age group.
