Leap Awards

What is the Leap Awards System?

The Leap Awards System provides athletes with goals to aim for during the season. It rewards athletes for their attendance, improvement and achievement.
An athlete can be awarded up to 5 Leap Frog awards in a season, for increasing levels of performance; Pink, Black, Purple, Orange and finally Gold. The leap awards can be displayed on the athlete’s centre uniform.

To qualify for the award of a Leap Frog, an athlete must achieve the qualifying standard in the prescribed number of track and field events for their age group – the mixture of track and field events is designed to encourage athletes to develop skills generally.

The numbers of events in which a qualifying standard is required depends on an athlete’s age group and are follows:

Pink, Black, Purple & Orange:

U6 to U8 – 1 x track + 2 x field, or 1 x field + 2 x track
U9 to U10 – 2 x track + 2 x field
U11 to U17 – 3 x track + 2 x field, or 3 x field + 2 x track

Gold:

U6 to U17 – Any 2 events, track or field

The qualifying standards are based on the LANSW multi-event and non-multi-event points tables. However, because it is significantly harder for smaller athletes to perform well in the “strength” events – Shot Put, Discus and Javelin – the qualifying standards for those events have been reduced.

The qualifying standards are summarised by age group in the Leap Award Performance sheets below:
