The SSAA Combined Events Championships take place during the last weekend in April or the first weekend in May for Minors, Juniors, Intermediates and Senior age groups. Entries come direct from schools and clubs.


Teams of four athletes (not Minors) are selected to represent the County at the South-West Regional Championships which usually take place on the fourth weekend of June.


The winning team, plus the top two individuals not in that winning team, from each age group qualify automatically for the ESAA Championships.


In addition, from the six Regional competitions, ESAA will extend invitations to the top 6 athletes in each age group who have not already qualified by right.


The ESAA Championships are held on the third weekend of September.


Race Walking Championships for Minors (not at ESAA Championships), Juniors, Intermediates and Seniors are also held at all Combined Events Championships.
