3. Participation
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 participate in other events of their own age group.
 
4. Uniform
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/NSATIS/SATIS is to be notified prior to the event. Organisers will then be notified.
 
5. Protests
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.
 
6. Disqualifications
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 SATIS delegate by the SATIS Administration Officer.
 
TRACK EVENTS
 
7. Division and lane allocation
NSATIS/SSATIS
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:
b. Race 1 and Race 2 will be run with the same lane rotation.
c. Times from both races will be combined and re-ranked to determine final placing’s.
d. 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.
e. In 800m events, competitors will run the first 100m in lanes where possible
 
SATIS
f. In events where competitors remain in lanes throughout the race, seeding of competitors will occur. The two fastest competitors, North and South will be placed in the fastest race and the remaining competitors will be seeded on the results from their respective carnivals.
g. The two fastest competitors of the four will be placed in lanes 4 and 5 respectively, then the next two in 3 and 6. The next four competitors, whether from North or South will be placed according to times in this order: 2,7,1,8. This will depend on the number of entries in each race. Where less than 8 competitors are in a race Lane 1 will not be used unless necessary for safety reasons.
h. Where seeding of races occurs, the athletes recording the fastest times will be placed in the second race.
 
8. Starting
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.
 
9. Blocks
Starting blocks must be used in all events up to and including 400m and 4 x 100m relays.
 
FIELD EVENTS
 
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. 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.
f. In individual events under 400m and 4x100m relays if a timing malfunction or other circumstance prevents heats being compared, the effected heat will be rerun within 30 minutes of the event being completed.
 
11. Marshalling
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. 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).
 
13. Spikes
Spike length must not exceed 7mm and 9mm in the heel of jumping and throwing shoes.
 
14. Coaches
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. SSATIS Individual Events: the first place competitor gains the same points as double the number of eligible schools competing for that shield 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. SATIS and NSATIS Individual Events: First placed competitor gains the same number of points as the number of eligible schools competing in the carnival for that shield. The competitor who comes second is given one point less than first place and the points are awarded to the other competitors on the same basis.
c. SSATIS 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.
d. SATIS/NSATIS Relay Events: double the number of points for a corresponding track event for the age and gender group.

ATHLETICS REGULATIONS – STATEWIDE
 SATIS – Athletics Regulations
SATIS/SSATIS/NSATIS – Athletics Regulations        Last updated on 21/06/2016
Current as of 17/06/2015
Meetings should be conducted under the laws of the International Association of Athletic Federations (IAAF) in conjunction with Athletics Australia, except as hereinafter stated.
 
1. Cancellations
In the event of inclement weather, a wet weather committee will meet prior to 7.30am. The SATIS Administration Officer will contact SATIS delegates by 7.30am re cancellation. The wet weather committee will comprise of the Chair of SATIS/SSATIS/NSATIS, SATIS Administration Officer and the organising school delegates.
 
2. Entries
For NSATIS/SSATIS carnivals member schools may have two entries in each individual event (one entry per school at the SATIS carnival), 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.
 
3. Participation
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 participate in other events of their own age group.
 
4. Uniform
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/NSATIS/SATIS is to be notified prior to the event. Organisers will then be notified.
 
5. Protests
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.
 
6. Disqualifications
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 SATIS delegate by the SATIS Administration Officer.
 
TRACK EVENTS
 
7. Division and lane allocation
NSATIS/SSATIS
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:
b. Race 1 and Race 2 will be run with the same lane rotation.
c. Times from both races will be combined and re-ranked to determine final placing’s.
d. 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.
e. In 800m events, competitors will run the first 100m in lanes where possible
 
SATIS
f. In events where competitors remain in lanes throughout the race, seeding of competitors will occur. The two fastest competitors, North and South will be placed in the fastest race and the remaining competitors will be seeded on the results from their respective carnivals.
g. The two fastest competitors of the four will be placed in lanes 4 and 5 respectively, then the next two in 3 and 6. The next four competitors, whether from North or South will be placed according to times in this order: 2,7,1,8. This will depend on the number of entries in each race. Where less than 8 competitors are in a race Lane 1 will not be used unless necessary for safety reasons.
h. Where seeding of races occurs, the athletes recording the fastest times will be placed in the second race.
 
8. Starting
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.
 
9. Blocks
Starting blocks must be used in all events up to and including 400m and 4 x 100m relays.
 
FIELD EVENTS
 
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. 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.
f. In individual events under 400m and 4x100m relays if a timing malfunction or other circumstance prevents heats being compared, the effected heat will be rerun within 30 minutes of the event being completed.
 
11. Marshalling
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. 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).
 
13. Spikes
Spike length must not exceed 7mm and 9mm in the heel of jumping and throwing shoes.
 
14. Coaches
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. SSATIS Individual Events: the first place competitor gains the same points as double the number of eligible schools competing for that shield 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. SATIS and NSATIS Individual Events: First placed competitor gains the same number of points as the number of eligible schools competing in the carnival for that shield. The competitor who comes second is given one point less than first place and the points are awarded to the other competitors on the same basis.
c. SSATIS 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.
d. SATIS/NSATIS Relay Events: double the number of points for a corresponding track event for the age and gender group.
 
e.    NSATIS Points System
(a)   Individual Events:  12, 11, 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1
            (b)   Relays:    12, 10, 8, 6, 4, 2

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.
 
18. Programs
The costs incurred by a school organising this carnival will be met by SSATIS/NSATIS/SATIS. 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/ NSATIS/SATIS.  Once published, lane allocation for track events (including relays) will not be changed unless safety is compromised due to conditions in particular lanes.
