GENERAL RULES FOR WPA TRACK & FIELD 2020

  1. Only athletes competing in their respective club colours will count for any team competition.
  2. Athletes entering for an event and failing to report, without prior warning or a medical certificate will be liable to a fine of R50. In addition, depending on the competition, points may be deducted from their club.
  3. Unless otherwise stated, where a program for a meeting provides for heats and finals, if there are no heats the final will take place at the time and date set aside for the final.
  4. Athletes must report to the competition area 15 min before the advertised starting time of their event and remain in the vicinity unless advised otherwise by the officials. Where there are several heats, athletes must report 15 min before the FIRST heat, otherwise they will be regarded as a no-show and will not be allowed to compete.
  5. In any middle distance event (i.e. 1500m and longer), any athlete who uses an event as a time trial (i.e. enters for an event longer than the distance which she or he intends to complete in), without informing the starter and the other athletes prior to the start of that event shall be liable to a fine of up to R100 and possible suspension from other middle distance events for no longer than three WPA track & field meetings. In the event of such behavior during an interclub meeting, any points earned by that athlete during that meeting will be forfeited and that athlete may be barred from taking part further in the meeting.
  6. WPA is NOT responsible for providing safety pins.
  7. Athletes born in 2006 and earlier are allowed to enter for WPA Track and Field Meetings.

STANDARDS FOR SELECTION FOR WPA TRACK & FIELD TEAMS TO THE aSa CHAMPIONSHIPS

  1. Athletes who wish to be selected for the teams must compete actively at WPA meetings during the 2020 domestic season, as all performances at meetings from 1 January 2020 will be taken into account by the Selectors.
  2. It is compulsory for all athletes wishing to be selected for the:
    1.  u.16, u.18 and u.20 teams to compete at the WPA Junior Track and Field Championships to be held on 12, 13 and 14 March 2020
    2.  Senior team to compete at the WPA Senior Track and Field Championships on 20 and 21 March 2020.

At the WPA Championships, athletes must compete in the event(s) for which they want to be selected.

  1. Should an athlete be unable to compete at the WPA Championships, but wishes to be considered for selection:
    1. The athlete must inform the WPA Selectors in writing before the start of the Championships or before the teams are announced.
    2. The athlete must provide a reason for non-participation
    3. If the reason is of a medical nature, the athlete must provide the WPA Selectors with a copy of the medical documentation.
    4. The documentation provided by the athlete must include full contact details of the athlete and Coach.
  2. Only athletes who are members of WPA clubs and who possess a 2020 license can enter for Championships and may be selected for WPA teams.
  3. In terms of ASA rules only South African citizens may compete at the national championships and therefore be selected for WPA teams for those championships.
  4. Athletes born in 2005 or 2006 will be eligible to be selected for the under 16 age group.
  5. Athletes born in 2003 or 2004 will be eligible to be selected for the under 18 age group.
  6. Athletes born in 2001 or 2002 will be eligible to be selected for the under 20 age group.
  7. The teams will be announced after the end of the relevant championships and athletes who believe they have a chance of selection are to be present when the teams are announced.
  8. Athletes competing at meetings outside WPA must provide certified official results of their performances to the Chairperson of WPA Track and Field before the start of the WPA Provincial Championships.
  9. Standards have been set based on national standards, which should serve as a guideline to athletes and coaches. It must be stressed that the published standards are minimum standards and that the attainment of these standards will not mean automatic selection.  Subject to point number 13 (below) It is unlikely, although not impossible, that an athlete who has not achieved these standards may be chosen to represent Western Province.
  10. Any athlete who achieves the selection standard AND wins the Western Province title in that event shall automatically be selected for that event.
  11. A maximum of 3 athletes per event will be selected, unless there are exceptional circumstances.
