Points are awarded for two athletes per club per discipline, additional 'non-scoring' athletes are also encouraged and we are allowed unlimited numbers of these in track events and one in each field event.  As this is an inclusive league there is a wide variety of standards of athletes, so you don't need to be experienced in track and field to take part.

Points are added up per match and throughout the season, with the top four or so teams moving up or down the league at the end of the season.  It is free to enter and in order to sign up you need to email the team managers with your choice of events.
