Event Summary

There are a number of Events held throughout the season both at Kingsway and at a State level.
The below information helps provide a summary of those events.

 

Kingsway Events

Opening Ceremony

23 OCT 2021

The Opening ceremony represents the official commencement of the season. A traditional part of the opening ceremony starts with a "Parade of Clubs", during
which most participating athletes march into the stadium, club by club. Each club's delegation is led by their Club Captains holding a sign identifying the Club and their flag. After all Clubs have entered, a number of speeches and awards are presented including the 'best club on parade'.
The Opening ceremony is attended by Life Members, local politicians and many other special guests. Following the ceremony, a modified program takes place.

Twilight Competitions

10 DEC 2021
28 JAN 2022

Each season, Kingsway LAC aims to hold at least two Twilight Competitions. These Competitions differ from normal Saturday Competitions as athletes only compete in four events - one jump, one throw, one long track and one short track event.
Twilight Competitions are an important addition to our calendar as it introduces athletes to 'Multi' competitions. In Multi competitions, athletes compete in a number of events and earn points based on their performance. The points from all events are added together to determine a Champion for each age group. This system is used at major athletic competitions in heptathlon and decathlon events.

Parent Relay

18 DEC 2021

Each season we hold an annual parent relay race with each Club entering a team of 4 men and 4 women. It's always a tough competition with athletes from all ages on the side-lines cheering the parents on. A shield is presented to the winning Club at our end of season Trophy presentation.

Centre Championships

19 FEB 2022
26 FEB 2022

Centre Championships are a chance for athletes in all age groups to compete in their favourite events, be awarded with ribbons for each personal best (PB) achieved and win medals if competing in a final. The event is the last competition held at the Centre each year and is akin to the Grand Final.
