SSATIS Athletics Regulations
Current at 03/03/2015
Meetings should be conducted under the laws of the International Association of Athletic Federations (IAAF) in conjunction with Athletics Australia, except as hereinafter stated.
In the event of inclement weather or forecast inclement weather conditions, a wet weather committee comprising of the Chair of SSATIS, SSATIS Administration Officer and the organising school delegates will meet the day prior to the carnival regarding cancellation/postponement. SSATIS Administration officer will contact SSATIS delegates at the earliest time possible regarding cancellation. Cancellation of carnivals will be done no later than 7:30am on the day of the carnival.
Member schools may have two entries in each individual event, one hurdles competitor and one 4 x 100m relay team/age group. Where no name is entered for an event on a schools’ entry form, then no competitor will be allowed to compete for that school in that event unless a late entry is received 30 minutes prior to the start of the carnival.
Competitors may only participate in one age group, however in SATIS carnivals where and only when, a particular event is not available in any age group, a competitor may participate in the next higher age group where the event occurs without it precluding him/her from participating in other events of their own age group.
a. Athletes must compete in their school’s prescribed sports uniform. Accepted school caps may be worn while competing but must be worn in the accepted manner i.e. Peak to the front. Failure to comply will result in either:
– Not being allowed to compete.
– Disqualification (within the time taken to complete a field event or following the completion of a track event).
b. If a school is unable to outfit teams/individuals in accepted school uniform for Athletics, the Chair of SSATIS is to be notified prior to the event. Organisers will then be notified.
a. The resolution of disputes arising from any event will be in the hands of the referee of the day appointed by the organiser.
b. Protests must be lodged with the SATIS Administration Officer, in writing, by the person-in-charge of a team, within fifteen minutes of the conclusion of the event concerned. The SATIS Administration Officer shall then refer the protest to the referee.
Where a competitor of a school is disqualified, such disqualification will not be announced. The school shall be notified of the reason for the disqualification through the SSATIS delegate by the SATIS Administration Officer.
7. Division and lane allocation
a. Track events are to be by random draw for the first event followed by a rotation. There should be a separate random draw for boys and girls events and for track and field.
Times from both divisions will be re-sorted to determine the final placing’s. A draw will be conducted to determine lane allocation and throwing and/or jumping order. A separate draw will be conducted for track and field events with separate draws for boy’s and girl’s events. The draw will apply to the first event in each area with an ordered rotation for subsequent events. Where, by necessity, an event is run in two races:
a.1. Race 1 and Race 2 will be run with the same lane rotation.
a.2. Times from both races will be combined and re-ranked to determine final placing’s.
b. When less than eight teams are entered in a relay, 200m and/or 400m, lane one will not be used unless carnival referee decides otherwise.
The athletics carnival is to be a 2-start carnival. The designated person breaking on the second start will be disqualified. If the race is stopped a third start will take place.
Starting blocks must be used in all events up to and including 400m and 4 x 100m relays.
10. Starting and Finishing Times
a. A field event will start at the listed starting time or as soon after when the event site becomes available.
b. There shall be three attempts in the throws and long / triple jumps.
c. Where a competitor records three fouls they shall be placed last. If more than one competitor is placed last the points shall be shared.
d. For the throws and long / triple jumps, the order within a round may be altered to accommodate competitors. Flexibility will be given to athletes competing in another event to ensure they have all 3 attempts between the commencement and conclusion of the event. E.g. an athlete may have multiple throws/jumps in one round before they depart or after they return from competing in another event.
e. In the case of the event will be declared to be finished when the last of those present for Round 3 has had his/her throw / jump. In the case of high jump, when the last of those present is eliminated or does not wish to attempt the next height. An athlete returning after that time will not be allowed any further attempts.
A competitor should report to the field event official prior to the actual commencement of the event. He/she may then go / return to another event. A competitor, who fails to report to an official before the actual commencement of the event, may compete in that event at the round/height occurring at the time of their arrival. Another person may report in on behalf of a competitor.
12. High Jump
a. In High Jump events, a competitor who is unable to clear the starting height shall be placed last. If a competitor elects to pass the starting height and subsequently fails to register a successful jump, no points shall be allocated. If two competitors fail to clear the starting height, then the points for the last two positions shall be added together and shared between the two competitors. This format shall be followed should more than two competitors fail at the starting height.
b. Competitors will have two/three attempts at clearing the bar height. The raising of the bar to a new height shall not be delayed in order to accommodate an absent athlete. (International Rules relating to passing a height or forgoing a second or third attempt at a particular height, in order to attempt a next height, apply).
Spike length must not exceed 7mm and 9mm in the heel of jumping and throwing shoes.
The onus is placed on individual schools to ensure that coaches and affiliated coaches stay off the arena. Each school is required to inform their athletes in writing, prior to a carnival, so that the intent of this clause is clearly communicated. If a coach will not leave the arena the student should approach the official at the event. The event should not continue until the coach has left the arena.
15. Points Allocation
a. Individual Events: First place competitor gains the same points as double the number of schools competing for that trophy in the Girls’ or Boys’ competition. Each subsequent placing will drop one point.
E.g. 9 schools- 1st: 18 points, 2nd: 17 points, 3rd: 16 points…….18th: 1 point
b. Relay Events: First place will gain the same points as one and a half times that allocated for first place in individual events for each age group in the Girls’ or Boys’ competition. Each subsequent placing will drop three points.
E.g. If five schools are eligible for a trophy, 1st – 15 pts, 2nd -12 pts, 3rd – 9pts etc.
The following trophies are presented at Southern SATIS Athletics Carnival (Total of 9 Trophies):
Aggregate (Boys, Girls, Co-Ed) – Schools with Years 7-12. Age Groups U13-Open.
College (Boys, Girls, Co-Ed.) – Schools with Years 11 & 12.
Junior (Boys, Girls, Co-Ed.) – Schools with Years 7-10. Age Groups U13-U16.
The order of trophy presentation will be rotated annually to avoid any one group of trophies gaining pre-eminence.
17. Announcement of Results
Final results are not to be read in full at the final presentation. Schools placed fourth and below will have their place only announced. Schools placed 3rd, 2nd and 1st will be announced in that order with their points. Schools shall only be announced in results for trophies that they are eligible to win.
The costs incurred by a school organising this carnival will be met by SSATIS. Program production costs are for paper and “in-house” photocopying. The athletics sub-committee cannot use an “outside” printing firm to produce a program without the permission of the Chair of SSATIS. Once published, lane allocation for track events (including relays) will not be changed unless safety is compromised due to conditions in particular lanes.
19. Tent Pegs
Tent pegs are to be covered with appropriate safety covers.

SSATIS Cricket Regulations
The ICC Standard Playing Conditions for Twenty20 matches provide the playing framework for all Twenty20 cricket. They are updated every year to reflect developments in the game.
The latest ICC documents related to rules and regulations can be found at http://www.icc-cricket.com/about/91/rules-and-regulations/overview
All matches in the SSATIS Grade 7-10 competition are played under the laws of cricket with the following amendments.
(a) Teams shall consist of a maximum 13 players each.
(b) No team may commence play on any day without at least eight (8) players at the ground. If for any reason a team is not ready to start play by 4.35pm it shall automatically forfeit the match.
(c) Matches will be played between 4:15pm and 6:45pm. The first innings shall commence at 4:15pm and conclude at 5:30pm. The second innings shall commence at 5:40pm and conclude at 6:45pm. In the event the team batting first is dismissed within 20 overs and prior to 5:30pm, the second innings may commence immediately following a 10 minute break, with the bowling team having 1 hr and 10 minutes to complete 20 overs.
(d) No over may be started after 6:45pm on any evening. It is the responsibility of umpires and coaches to ensure that this rule is not broken. Late starts, slow over rates and weather interruptions are not excuses for breaking this rule.
(e) Late Starts Due To Weather: Should a late start occur due to the weather conditions, the time remaining shall be divided in half and overs calculated at the rate of one over every 3 minutes. Should the number of overs remaining not be devisable by two, add one additional over to ensure both teams receive an equal number of overs.
(f) No team may bat for more than 20 overs and a Compulsory Declaration will occur at 5:40pm regardless of whether the 20 overs have been completed.
(g) In the event that the team batting first does not get bowled out and are forced to close their innings prior to facing their allotted 20 overs, the team batting second shall only receive the same number of overs as they bowled to the team batting first.
(h) Play shall cease at 6:45pm or at the completion of the over that commenced prior to 6:45pm. Should the team batting second receive fewer overs than the team batting first, the result will be determined by the runs scored at the completion of the equal number of overs faced by each team.
(i) The ball to be used is to be of good quality, White coloured and EITHER a two piece or 4 piece leather ball.
(j) Only those matches where results are achieved will count for the purpose of net run rate calculations. Where a match is abandoned, but a result is achieved the SATIS 1st Regulations apply… If the innings of the team batting second is shortened, then the amended target score will be calculated as follows:
– the total runs scored by the team batting first from the same number of overs to be received by the team batting second.
– The highest scoring overs of the team batting first shall be counted.
– This total is then discounted by the rate of 0.5% per over lost. e.g. If the match was reduced to a 35 over match the second team must score 95% of the sum of the 35 highest scoring overs from the first 45 over innings.
– the target score is then the discounted total (ignoring fractions) plus 1 run.
(a) A batsman must retire after facing 20 balls during an innings. Retired batters may return to bat at the fall of the last wicket of that innings, in the same order that they retired.
(b) New batsmen must be in position within 90 seconds of a wicket falling.
(a) No Bowler may bowl more than 4 overs in a game.
(a) A No Ball is;
1) A short pitched delivery that passes or would have passed above the batsman standing upright at the crease.
2) A full toss over waist height regardless of the speed of the bowler.
(b) A No Ball equals one run plus any runs scored by the batsman and shall be re-bowled.
(c) The delivery following a no ball shall be a free hit to the batsman with standard rules on no-ball dismissals applying.
(a) All fielders must be at least 10 metres from the batsman. This restriction doesn’t apply to the wicket keeper or slips cordon, including Gully.
(b) A bat/pad fielder is allowed but it is compulsory to wear a helmet and a protector (box). Should the bat/pad not wear a helmet the umpires will not allow play to commence until the player is at least 10 metres from the batsman.
(c) No more than four (4) fielders may be within 20 metres of the boundary for any delivery. The 20 metre mark shall be judged by the umpire/s.
The result is decided on the number of runs scored by each team at the same number of overs as per Rule 1(d) and 1(g). If both teams are tied on the same number of runs, the result in this case is a Tie.
N.B. Declarations are counted as team dismissed.
Each team must face a minimum of five (5) overs for a result to be attained from a match.
The match points in this competition are awarded as follows;
DRAW/NO RESULT (wash out) 3
FORFEIT WIN 5
FORFEIT LOSS 0
As stated above, a No Ball will incur a one run penalty to be scored in the No Balls column.
In the case that runs are taken off a No Ball, these will be additional to the one run penalty for the bowling of the No Ball. If these runs are off the bat, any runs taken will go to the batsman, with the one run penalty being recorded in the No Balls column. If runs are taken as byes or leg-byes, the same situation will occur with one run added to the No Balls column and any additional runs completed added to the byes or leg-byes column.
A wide equals one run and shall be re-bowled. Should the wide not be taken by the wicket keeper or any other fieldsman, the additional runs are scored as wides, for example, if a wide is bowled and the batsmen run two, the total is three wides.

ii. For all grades umpires will be appointed where possible.
i. If in the final innings the side first at bat fails, in their turn at bat, to pass the score of the second team at bat from the last complete innings, then the game shall be called and the team second at bat will be declared the winner. If during the final innings the side second at bat, during their turn at bat, passes the score of the team first at bat, the game shall be called and the team second at bat declared the winner.
