Competition and Teams: All students at the school will compete in a range of athletic field and track events. Some events will require qualifying times and distances to be eligible for Zones. The top athletes who qualify are selected to compete at the Zone event and from that competition a Lincoln Zone team is selected to compete at Canterbury Primary School athletics late in Term 4.

Training: Students will get daily PE sessions carried out by their classroom teachers leading into athletics. For further training students will need to undertake their own personal training.
Uniform and Equipment: Students will need to compete in their house colours at the school events and a school singlet, t-shirt and tracksuit will be provided for the Zone or Canterbury events.
