The SAMA summer competition commenced on Wednesday 17 October 2018 at SA Athletics Stadium, Mile End. The detailed Summer Program is available (updated 7/3/2019).

See the Competition Formats page for further details, including the latest updates about each week's competition.

Athletics SA Competition

SAMA is a full member club with ASA, so that SAMA members can compete in ASA competition. You will need to compete in a SAMA uniform and if you don’t have one please see the Uniforms page for information about ordering.

Our membership of ASA is the same as in previous years. See the Competing with ASA document for a summary of the most important parts, but for further options you should go to the ASA web site.

SAMA has paid for basic membership for all our members. At this level of membership you will now have to pay $30 per T&F competition day and at least $30 per State Championship event (ASA Champs not SAMA). Note that it is still necessary to register on the ASA website to activate that membership for no further charge.

For an extra annual fee, individuals may choose to upgrade their membership when registering with ASA to a Bronze or Silver membership (or take out a First Year membership if applicable) to reduce the cost per day/event (for details see the Competing with ASA document).

Membership Registration is done through the following link: https://memberdesq.onesporttechnology.com/1772/org. When registering, select your club as 'Masters - SA'.

If you have any questions about this process, or have any issues with the on-line system, please contact the Athletics SA office on 83543477 or email admin@athleticssa.com.au.

Information about the ASA Summer Track & Field Season can be found on the ASA Website.

Winter Program 2019

The winter competition is held each Saturday afternoon at various venues in the parklands around Adelaide, from May to September. Download the program for the 2019 winter season , which commences on Saturday 4 May 2019, and finishes on 7 September 2019.

SAMA Survey on 2019 Winter Program

Before locking in the program, the Committee sought the views of all SAMA members on some proposed alternative options*, and also whether there was support for holding a Winter Track & Field competition. We also ascertained preferences concerning two other aspects of the winter program ie. handicap vs scratch races, and competition venues. A survey was conducted using Survey Monkey, which resulted in an overall 25% response rate. The full details of the survey results are available to download (PDF).

* Proposed alternative options.
On two Saturdays (18th May & 10th August) there will be no separate SAMA competition. Instead members may elect to participate in a parkrun of their choice, or take part in one of the alternative events shown below:
• Runners will be encouraged to join a SAMA team for the ASA /RUNNING SA RELAYS at a city location.
• Walkers will be encouraged to take part in joint competitions with SA ROAD WALKERS CLUB at Peacock Road.
