EVENT OVERVIEW

The 2017 Australian All Schools Championships will be held in Adelaide, SA, from Friday 8th to Sunday 10th, December.

The Australian All Schools Championships, organised by Athletics Australia, is the National Track and Field Championships for school sport. The two and a half day competition has both individual medals and state team trophies.

The Queensland team is selected and managed by Queensland Athletics (QA). Athletes selected in the Queensland team will stay together in Adelaide as a team, very much like a National team at major games.

Selections for the Queensland team will be made solely from the results at the 2017 Queensland Secondary Schools Track & Field Championships (12-15 October).
