Lane Draws & Order of Competition


The allocation of lanes and order of attempts in all events are pre-determined. Within each division, participating clubs are allocated a letter bib which determines the lanes and starting order.

The NAL will provide the athletes bibs for each match. All track events will require front and back letter bibs, whereas field events one letter bib. ‘A’ string events will be allocated single letter bibs and ‘B’ string competitor’s double letter bib.

In track events where A and B compete separately, the Team Manager has an obligation to ensure that the better athlete is the ‘A’ string competitor.
