Recognition Program

At Box Hill Little Athletics we have a number of ways we recognise our athletes and their efforts.

All registered Athletes are eligible for a number of awards, presented by the Box Hill Little Athletics Centre. In order for a registered athlete to be eligible for an award, he/she must have attended at least 50% of all available Box Hill competition days (including multi-event day) and parents must have completed their allocation of duties.

PLEASE NOTE: Winners of the Age Group Champion awards and/or Athlete of the Year Awards are ineligible for a Personal Best Award.

BHLAC 2017 Awards Recipients

Athlete of the Year

Athlete of the year is awarded to:

Junior Athlete of the Year – one girl and one boy in the U8 – U10 age groups, and

Senior Athlete of the Year – one girl and one boy in the U11 – U16 age groups.

Winners are the athletes in each age bracket with the highest aggregate points score of the athlete’s two best performances (relevant to their age group), in each track and field event achieved at a Box Hill Centre Competition.

 

Age Group Champions 1st, 2nd and 3rd

Age Group Champion awards are presented to the top three boys and the top three girls in each age group (U8 – U16) with the highest aggregate points score. The aggregate point score is the total of the athlete’s two best performances (relevant to their age group) in each track and field event achieved at a Box Hill Centre Competition day. 

(Note: It is important to attend as many competition days as possible, so the athlete can record at least two performances in every event.)

 

Personal Best Award

Medals are awarded to athletes in the U7 – U16 age groups. These medals recognise each athlete’s efforts to compete as much as possible and their endeavour to improve on their own best performances. These awards do not compare one athlete’s performance on the track or field with that of another.

There are three levels of achievement awards for each age group based on the number of PBs achieved during the season, calculated using the following criteria:

An award is presented in recognition of the athlete’s continued efforts to improve and their dedication in representing the Box Hill Little Athletics Centre during the cross-country season.
