A BRIEF HISTORY

 

The School Sport Australia Track & Field Exchange had its beginnings in 1971 as a two state Exchange between Queensland and New South Wales. Each state would take it in turns to host a team from the other state to compete in their State Primary Schools Athletics Championships. The visiting team competed by invitation, but enjoyed the hospitality of the host families and schools.

In 1975 the inaugural Australia Primary Schools Athletics Championships was hosted by NSWPSSA at Lysaght’s Recreation Reserve. Three states competed in this Championship – New South Wales, Queensland and South Australia.

ACT and NT joined the competition in 1977 with Victoria coming on board in 1978. Unfortunately, SA & NT were not able to field teams at all Championships/Exchanges during the late 1980’s and early 1990’s (except for Pacific School Games). However, after the 1996 Pacific School Games, six states/territories have regularly attended the Exchange and 2001 a team from Tasmania competed for the first time.

Pacific School Games came into being in 1982, which saw every state & territory field a team. In Pacific School Games years, the regular Primary Championship/Exchange was incorporated as part of the Pacific School Games.

Events contested regularly have been 100m, 200m, 800m, Relay, Long Jump, High Jump and Shot Put. Discus was introduced in 1995, the 1500m in 1998 and the Medley Relay and Multi Event in 2001. The 1500m was only contested in 1998 as it was felt that the event was not suited to the Exchange format. It  was re-introduced as part of the 2017 Pacific School Games

In 1995, the Australian Schools Sports Council (ASSC) appointed a National Track & Field Secretary to oversee the Rules & Guidelines for the sport & represent the sport at ASSC Conferences and with the National body.

In 2003, events for Athletes with a Disability (AWD) were introduced into the program. These were initially for 10-12yrs in one age group in 100m, 200m, 800m, Long Jump and Shot Put. It was very quickly seen that these events would expand and events were separated into 10, 11 and 12 years age groups for both boys and girls. Relays, both 4x100m and Medley, were also added and Discus was added in 2008. In 2012, using past results, records were established for Athletes with a Disability in all classification groups with the first record certificates being presented at the 2012 Championships.

In 2002, the event underwent a change of title from ‘Primary’ to ‘12 years and under’ to acknowledge that 12 years competing at the Exchange could come from either a primary or a secondary school. In 2009, the event became a Championship.

Many children who represented their States/Territories at these championship/Exchanges have gone onto represent Australia in Track & Field or branch out and play other sports at an elite level (e.g. AFL, NRL, Netball) demonstrating the solid grounding athletics gives children to participate in any sport.
