With a busy period of international events behind it, Athletics PNG is now focusing on its domestic Programme of events for the remainder of the year.
The East New Britain association is hosting the PNG Air NGI Regional Championships at Vuvu Secondary school on September 23/24.
West New Britain are preparing to send a large team along the New Britain Highway next week to attend this event.
New Ireland have also confirmed their intention to participate, as have the Autonomous Region of Bouganville. Invitations have also been sent to Primary and Secondary Schools in ENB and a very good turnout is expected.
Meanwhile the Port Moresby Athletic Association are gearing up to stage the PNG Air Southern Region Championships at the Sir John Guise Stadium on the weekend of October 1 and 2.
Schools in NCD have been invited to participate, long with teams representing the various athletics clubs in the City and a team from the Central Province Schools Association.
Participating teams for both events are encouraged to nominate their Para athletes so that events can be added to the programme according to demand.
Entry forms, competition rules and a draft timetable for each of these Championships are on the Athletics PNG website and can also be obtained through email email@example.com.
Any queries can be directed to Athletics PNG on 71290002.
Following these two events , teams will have two months to prepare their athletes for the National Championships which will be held at the Sir John Guise Stadium from December 9 to 11.
