Club Record Policy & Application Form
Club records can only be broken at weekly Macquarie Hunter Carnivals or Major Athletics Championship Carnivals (e.g. Zone, Regional, State Multi’s, Relay’s etc, State, Country, Trans Tasman, Australian team competitions and internationally recognised competitions).
To qualify for a record, the athlete must be participating in their appropriate age group and gender for that event (as per LAANSW or ANSW rules). Different recognition criteria apply depending upon where the record is to be attempted.
1. Macquarie Hunter Carnivals
(i) Electronic Timed Track Events
Providing the electronic gates are being used by a trained operator and the start and finishing times are controlled by the electronic gate system and the operator is not the Athlete’s relation or coach, the results from the timing gates may be used to record a new club record.
If you are considering attempting a Club Record, it is advisable that you notify the Timing Gate Operator in advance to ensure that the electronic timing system will be used.
After the Record has been broken, an Application for Club Record must be filled out. The application form MUST be witnessed and signed off by (3) Club officials and (2) Club Executives. The form MUST be submitted to the Rank & Recording officer for Record confirmation.
(ii) Hand Timed Track Events and Field Events
An Application for Club Record MUST be obtained from the office or website (see below for link) and a minimum of (2) Event officials and (2) Executive Committee Members MUST witness the record attempt and measurement of the record.
The application form MUST be signed off by all witnesses after the result is recorded and the form MUST be submitted to the Rank & Recording officer for confirmation.

For a record to be recognised the form needs to include all the details of the carnival (i.e. Zone, Regional, State Multi or State) and the event. The Executive Committee will research and confirm the performance before recognition will be given.
