The Australian All Schools Championships is one of two competitions at the forefront of the national pathway for secondary school-aged students. The other competition is the Australian Junior Athletics Championships which will be held in Sydney from March 14-18 2018.
As one of the pinnacle junior events in Australia, the Australian All Schools Championships will see athletes from all Australian States and Territories compete in a team based competition with the focus placed on accumulating points for their State or Territory. The 2017 Australian All Schools will be held at the SA Athletics Stadium, Adelaide from 8-10 December 2017.
The competition format for the Australian All Schools is a State vs State point score competition conducted over three days. The WA Team will be aiming to retain the Small State Point Score Team Trophy that we won in 2015 & 2016.
The selection event for the WA State Team is the 20178 Go for 2&5 WA All Schools Championships to be held at the WA Athletics Stadium from 27-29 October 2016.
