The School Sport WA Secondary Cross Country date has been changed
The reason for this is to accommodate a large number of schools who report that the second date of June 3rd is still within their exam period due to the 11 week term, and that they would not be able to bring Year 10,11 or 12 students.
SSWA realises that some students who nominate for the state team may not be able to compete due to attending the National Track & Field Championships in April. The number of these students impacted would be nowhere near to the number impacted by the June date. Therefore the decision to return to the earlier date was taken.
SSWA will allow students who are not able to compete in this April event due to extenuating circumstances, to submit an official time from another event. Please contact the SSWA office to discuss this, close to the date if it happens that you cannot compete on April 29th.
Anyone who has already nominated for this event has been contacted via email with this update.
