The Berwick Little Athletics Multi Event proudly supported by South East Accountants
The Multi-Event event is the Little Athletics equivalent of the Decathlon &/or Heptathlon. The concept of the Multi-event is to determine combined performance across a range of disciplines including running, jumping and throwing. Points are awarded for the performance in each individual discipline (not place) and are then combined at the conclusion to determine a total point score. At Centre Level Berwick uses the Alberta Points scoring tables for U9-U15 athletes and at the State Multi-Event LAVic uses the Alberta Points scoring tables for U9-U14 athletes and the IAAF scoring tables for U15-19 athletes as this is the points system used by Little Athletics Australia at the Australian Little Athletics Championships (ALAC)
Berwick LAC uses a modified version of the Alberta Table for U6-U8 Athletes
Please do not compare Age Group against Age Group especially if you have children in multi Age Groups
