– Be placed in the top 3 athletes at Regional in their age group for any and all events

The final decision will be determined by the panel of committee members (this panel will be chosen by the exec & two other randomly chosen committee members).
As there are the older athletes who compete in more events, if the panel believes there are two athletes that earn club champion then we will have joint Club champions.
