Rules & Regulations

An overview of the official athletics rules.

General Rules
  • If competitors are entered in both a track and a field event or in more than one field event taking place simultaneously, the judges may allow them to participate in an order different from that decided upon prior to the competition. High jump must, however, take precedence.
  • In throwing or jumping for distance no competitor is allowed to have more than one attempt recorded in any one round of the competition.
  • In the field events each competitor may be allowed up to three practice attempts and in all the events except high jump they will be allowed three attempts which go towards their best and final result.
  • Once the competition has begun, competitors are not permitted to use the runways or take-off areas for practice or warm up purposes, nor are they permitted to use throwing sites for practice trials, with or without implements.

All events will take place under IAAF Competition rules with the following exceptions:

Triple Jump
  • The length of run up is restricted to 6m at U13 games with no restriction for U15 Games
  • The competitors may elect to take off from 5m, 7m or 9m boards. Where none such exist, the organisers should lay down temporary markings
High Jump
  • The height of the bar will start where all competitors are capable of jumping. The height the bar is raised between each round will also be geared to the ability of the competitors. The competitors shall be informed of this before the competition begins.
  • Competitors have a maximum of seven jumps.
  • Competitors may commence jumping at any of the heights above the minimum height and may jump at their discretion at any subsequent height.
  • The height of the bar will go up in increments of 5cm until such time there are only 3 competitors left and at which time the bar will go up in 3cm’s.
  • Elimination will be after 3 consecutive failures (although they do not have to be at the same height).
  • After the competitor has won the competition and still has jumps to take, the height to which the bar is raised shall bedecided after the judge of the competition has consulted the wishes of the competitor.
  • Ties for first place only shall be decided by counting back. In the event of a tie the winner will be (reference the IAAF Handbook)
  • The athlete with lowest number of jumps at that height
  • The athlete with the fewest number of failures up to and including the last height cleared.
  • If there is subsequently still a tie for first place the jumpers move back to the last height which those included in the tie jumped at one attempt
  • If more than one jumper involved in the tie is successful the bar goes up until there is a result .
  • If there is still a tie for first place jumper move back to the last height which those included in the tie jumped at one attempt
  • The designated high jump judge will decide whether or not a jump is valid.
