State Series Awards (Individual Champions)
Overall State Series Awards will be awarded in each age group taken from an athlete’s best results with no more than three (3) results being from the same discipline (five disciplines as listed under ‘The events’ on page 1. See FAQ for an example of how this applies.
Best results refer to the basis of points accrual, i.e., results with the highest points value count 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).
Races that are cancelled will not count towards points accrual, however at TV discretion may be included if conducted in a modified format.
For athletes in age categories 12-13, 14-15 and 16-19 years the racing opportunities vary a little due to the race competition rules restricting race distances. For each of the ‘junior’ age groups the events nominated as state series events are highlighted in the table ‘Schedule of Events’
State Series Shield (Club Champions)
The Victorian Triathlon State Series Club Champion title is awarded to club/squad (State Series Shield) based on results from the selected multisport events across the season.
Organisations must be recognised as an affiliated club/squad (referred to as clubs) to be eligible for the State Series Shield and will be classified according to their size/type (classification confirmed using membership taken at 30 June 2021)
- Small Club – less than 100 members
- Large Club – 100 or more members
Clubs/squads accrue points from the performance and participation of their members calculated from the State Series events (as described in ‘How it works’).
The Champions clubs (small and large) will receive the State Series Shield and have the rights to use the State Series Champion logo to recognise this achievement.
Performance Club Award
This award recognises the role clubs and squads play in supporting and developing high performance athletes across junior, elite and age group racing.
The Performance Club Award will be calculated from the State Series events with points accumulated by club members. Points are awarded to the first three placegetters (podium finishers) across junior, elite and age group racing on a 3,2,1 basis.
The club with the highest accumulated points across all State Series events will receive the Performance Club Award and have the rights to use the 2022 Performance Club of the Year logo to recognise this achievement.
