If grade 8 athletes want to compete in Junior events: Hammer, Pole Vault, Steeplechase, Race-walk, Intermediate Hurdles at the BC's - they must compete at the Junior Level in ALL OF THEIR EVENTS at the Fraser Valleys to advance to the BC's.
For Surrey Zone Championships:
If they want to compete in Gr 8 (shot) for example, and then Jr. Hammer - THIS IS O.K. FOR PARTICIPATION REASONS - but they will not be advanced to the Fraser Valley's in the hammer as a Grade 8, and if they WANT to do hammer - they cannot advance in the Grade 8 Shot. Direct Athletics registration must only be at one level other than relays. They will get the point score that they achieved in hammer added to their aggregate points. We agreed last year that the team points would go to the correct grade level toward a banner.
- Example: Suzy Smith, grade 8 competes in Shot, Discus & Junior Hammer. She wins Shot, gets second in Discus and places 3rd in Jr. Hammer behind two grade 10 girls. (It does not matter that she is the first grade 8)
- She receives 10,8 & 7 points for a total of 25 toward an aggregate. Her grade 8 team gets the same number of points.
