The BDPSSA conducts 2 athletics carnivals every year.

  • Standardised Athletics
  • Championship Athletics

Standardised Athletics

Date: Thursday, July 21, 2016 (Grade 3/4 students)
Friday, July 22, 2016 (Grade 5/6 students)

This is a day designed to be fun and to give all students an opportunity to compete in 6 athletics events.  They also have the opportunity to socialise and compete against other students from schools in Brunswick.  For 2016 we have split the day into 2 days, due to the increasing numbers of students at all schools.

Prior to attending the event, students are provided with a “Star Card” which is used to indicate to students how well they performed at the events.  Students rotate around 5 events. The events students participate in are:

  • 100m sprint
  • High Jump
  • Long Jump
  • Shot Put
  • Discus

Students attend in Grade groups: Grade 3/4s in the morning session, Grade 5/6s in the afternoon session.

Championship Athletics

Date: Friday, August 19, 2016.

The Championship Athletics is a competitive event, acting as a selection event for students to attend the Inner North/Moreland Division Athletics.  Schools will usually conduct selection trials at their school to select 1 child per event to represent their school at the BDPSSA Championship Athletics.  Students compete in age groupings.

The BDPSSA Championship Athletics holds the following events:

  • 100m
  • 100m B (competitors in this event cannot be selected to attend the INM Athletics)
  • 200m
  • 800m
  • 1500m
  • 4x100m relay
  • Long Jump
  • Triple Jump
  • Shot Put
  • Discus
  • High Jump

School Sport Victoria (SSV) rules stipulate that students can compete in no more than 2 events (not including the 4x100m relay).

Competitors finishing 1st and 2nd in each event will be selected to attend the Inner North/Moreland Division Athletics.
