Club Records & Awards


SAMA Club Records

The historical and current South Australian State Age Group (SAG) records (SAMA Club Records) can be viewed as a web file. See also the bottom of this page for other viewing and downloading options.

All SAMA and ASA members are eligible to set new SAG Records , but in doing so the Rules relating to setting records must be complied with. Where applicable, records can only be accepted when Masters Technical Specifications are used.

If you believe that you have set a new Club Record, please notify the SAMA Statistician, Ros Lowe. We try to keep aware of new record performances, but the onus is on the athlete achieving the record to ensure that it is notified to the SAMA Statistician for ratification.
