Festival of Athletics
NSW Masters will be hosting a Festival of Athletics in the month of September inviting athletes, new and old to get involved
The Festival of Athletics is for athletes who want to get a head start on the 2023/24 season, and for new athletes who want to find out more about our sport. These events will focus purely on participation event though results will be recorded, these will not be eligible for any records, or be included in the end of season awards.
These events are open to members and non-members, so if you have family and friends who have been interested in trying athletics but are a bit unsure, this is the perfect opportunity to give this a try.
This is the first part of the NSWMA Summer calendar, but we are waiting on a couple of venues to confirm availability before we release the full calendar. We have two regional events penciled in and will be looking to add more over the Winter season.
Entries for the Festival of Athletics are now open, and we are looking forward to seeing everyone at the track. All events will start at 2pm except the Festival of Jumps which will start at 3.30pm

This year QMA has joined forces with Team Elite to provide a range of merchandise including shirts, singlets and caps. Team Elite provided the merchandise when the AMA Championships were held in Brisbane in 2022. The merchandise website is below. Have a look as there are some great colours.
Queensland Masters Athletics would love to have you participate, either as an entrant or as one of the many volunteer helpers needed. The great thing about the Winter Throws is that it is all about participation and enjoying the camaraderie of the event.
