Combined Event Scoring System

All combined events are currently calculated through ResultsHQ and are based on the athletes best trial for each event using a formula (not a points table).

Under 9 – Under 12 Athletes

  • Since 2022-23 with the introduction of ResultsHQ for State events, Under 9 – Under 12 age groups have used the Little Athletics NSW formulas.
  • These formulas are scaled by age and gender for State championships and may not be suitable for Centre Combined Events due to minimum standards which results in “0” points.
  • There are no minimum points for an event.
  • The NSW formulas are similar, but not exactly the same as points scored for events prior to season 2022-23 which used a points table system.

Under 13 – Under 15 Athletes

  • These age groups use the standard IAAF formulas for Combined Events, these are the same formulas as used for men and women in World Athletics.
  • LATas has used this calculation method for several years for these age groups for State championships.
