So that athlete competition loads are not over stretched during a one-day competition such as that offered in 2019, the 1500m events are not included. The Selection Trials for the 1500m events will be run in conjunction with the 1500m events at the PSST Meet in Launceston the previous day (Friday 10 May). Athletes not chosen in their school regional team for the 1500m or who attend schools not affiliated with PSST, will be able to apply to Athletics Tasmania to run in these events by invitation.
To be considered for selection in the Primary 10-12 Years State Team to compete at the 2019 Primary SSA 10-12 Years Track & Field National Championships, athletes must complete a nomination form by Friday 17 May at 10.00pm. Please ensure you read the Selection Criteria for this event.

The Tasmanian Primary All Schools will as usual be staged within the Tasmanian All Schools in October 2019. The only difference in 2019 will be that they will not be the selection trials for the 10-12 Years Nationals.
