Weight Class Changes – Change to Procedures

As part of measures to ensure that competitions run as smoothly as possible, we are changing the procedures around weight class changes. Beginning with the District competitions in February and March 2017, the final date for changes to weight classes will be the day that entry for the competition closes (usually 2 weeks beforehand).

Therefore, the final date for weight class changes for the District competitions will be as follows:

  • Eastern Districts – 4 February
  • Northern Districts – 12 February
  • Western Districts – 19 February

If you do not weigh in within your nominated weight class on the day, you will be allowed to compete as a guest. This means that you will not be eligible to take a medal or place within any weight class but you are (theoretically) able to achieve qualifying totals and set records.
