Rules of Competition

The Competition Rules are based on modified rules of the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) as found in the IAAF official handbook and the Standard Rules for Competition of Little Athletics Australia (LAA).

Specific rules relating to State Events and their processes which are not covered by IAAF or LAA Standard Rules will be included following review by LAWA working groups.

As much as possible the IAAF Rule, LAA Standard Rule and WA local rules have been combined into one document to for ease of convenience for athletes and officials. Athletes and Officials are to be familiar with modifications and terminology changes.
