State Series Awards (Individual Champions)
Overall State Series Awards will be awarded in each age group taken from an athlete’s best results across the series calendar, the winners will be those Triathlon Australia members who ends up with the highest points following all races.
Races that are cancelled will not count towards points accrual, however at Triathlon Victoria discretion may be included if conducted in a modified format.
For athletes in age categories 12-13, 14-15 (Youth) and 15-19 (Junior) years the racing opportunities vary due to the race competition rules restricting race distances. For each of the ‘Youth and Junior’ age groups the events nominated as State Series events are highlighted in the table ‘Schedule of Events’. This means these age groups will only accrue points in the Enticer/Fun Tri/Dash category for 12-13 and 14-15 (Youth), and Sprint distance category for the 15-19 (Junior)*.
For athletes in the Multiclass category the racing opportunities vary to align with national pathways and guidelines. Therefore, each of the ‘Multiclass’ events nominated as State Series events are highlighted in the table ‘Schedule of Events’. This means the Multiclass athletes will only accrue points in the Sprint distance category.
