Award Criteria for the Victorian Triathlon State Series Champion (Age Group Awards)
|Award Description||The 2019-20 Victorian State Series Champion title is awarded to individuals based on results from selected multisport events across the 2019-20 season.|
|Eligibility||All members of Triathlon Victoria (Australia) are eligible for this award.
Champion athletes accrue points from racing in State Series races, with the athlete’s total score based on the State Series rules.
|Nomination & Selection||The award process:
Overall season State Series Awards will be awarded in each age group taken from an athlete’s as per the ‘state series rules’
Best results refers to the basis of points accrual; i.e. results with the highest points value counted towards the overall score. (E.g. An athlete may receive more points for a lower placing in a state championship event than a higher placing in a non-championship event and hence the higher points will be counted rather than the higher placing).
Points are allocated on a top down system. In the event of a non-member or a member of another State or Territory placing in the top 10 these points are included in the point’s allocation, but these people are ineligible for State awards.
The age categories for the State Series start at 14-15 years, 16-19 years and then progress in five (5) yr. age groups starting from 20 (i.e. 20 – 24 etc.) upwards. All ages are based on the 31stof December 2019.
