IWAS Junior Athletics Championships 2012, deadline extended


Due to nations awaiting budget approval the new date for entries is 30th March

The 2012 IWAS Junior Athletics Championships Entry Date has been extended to 30th March 2012.

We have received entries from 10 countries but as some nations are awaiting budget approval the 1st entry deadline has been extended to allow nations the chance to still enter and compete.
The championships are to be hosted by AK Olomouc at the athletics club Olomouc, Czech Republic 17-22 July.

The 2010 IWAS World Junior Games were hosted at this venue and they proved to be very successful Games so we are in no doubt that these championships will be just as triumphant.

The competition is open to IWAS member nations and junior athletes from classes 30+, 40+ and 50+. At this event Race running will be included in the programme and we hope to see this event grow in many of our other up and coming events.

The Junior’s age bands for Athletics are:

  • U23 born in 1990, 1991, and 1992
  • U20 born in 1993 and 1994
  • U18 born in 1995 and 1996
  • U16 born in 1997 and 1998

(Age is taken as on the 31 December of the year of the competition)
Age bands for race running will be in accordance with the race running rules.
