This represents a fantastic opportunity to compete in what is described as the pinnacle event within the Oceania for athletics!
From the Oceania website:
“The introduction of an Under 16 competition, into the Area Championships, is seen as an exciting development for Oceania Athletics. With school athletics being so strong throughout the region, with competitions such as the Coke Games, Colgate Games, Australian All Schools to name a few, seen as significant within their own Member Federations. The U16 competition, will take the format of Teams Competition, with teams able to enter through, Clubs or Schools, Regions, States or Member Federations”
