Track & Field Permitting:
Permitting all Track & Field fixtures-Level 2
(County level) to Level 5 (international level)
by UKA to be introduced with the exception that
Level 2 permits in the Celtic Home Countries are
undertaken by those Home Countries.
An athlete should be allowed to change his First
claim club once every year with only a minimal
administrative period between with no further
penalty (currently four months) since so few
Eligibility committees are giving anything more
than one month at the present time. Athletes
changing more than once a year will be subject
to the current rule of four months.
False Start Rule:
The current international false start rule of DQ
at the first failure has been applied to Seniors
from 2010. It is decided that this rule will now
include the U20 and U17 Age Groups with effect
from 1st April 2013.
Boys and 400m v 300m rule proposal:
is agreed that U15 boys will run 300m in
Championship events and U15 National League.
Other competition providers can use their
discretion and include a 400m for Under 15 boys
within their programmes if they so wish.
NB: KCAA Track
Field committee have agreed to adopt this new
distance for U15 Boys in the 2012 KYAL
Other proposals did not get accepted.
