The upcoming 5th SEA Junior Championships which was slated to be held on 26th to 27th October 2010, will be postponed to 3rd and 4th November instead.

Posted September 3rd.
The 5th South East Asian Junior Championship supposedly held in the month of May in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia is postponed to 26th to 27th October 2010 with the venue changed to Bangkok, Thailand.
There have been enquires on the new selection criteria imposed and the selection trial for athletes who have not met the entry standard set in the selection criteria.
The new management committee has decided to apply the new selection criteria as there were no documentation of selected athletes by the former management except for the 16 athletes (8 boys and 8 girls) who competed in the Asian Area Qualification for Youth Olympic Games (AAQ). Moreover, since the championships is postponed to a date 5 months later, the new management committee saw the necessity for the new qualification period starting 1 July 2010 ending 30 September 2010 which is nearer to the championships as it would be impractical to base selection on performances achieved in the first half of th year. This qualification period would have encompassed the following competitions: ASEAN Schools Games, 5th All Comers’ Meet and 72nd Singapore Open Track & Field Championships. Results from meets sanctioned by SAA during this qualification period can also be used.
As the Championships coincides with many of our schools’ end of year examinations, the 16 AAQ athletes are requested to express their interest of participation by 15 September 2010 via email to mail_at_singaporeathletics.org.sg.
Additionally, we welcome all other eligible youth and junior athletes born in the years 1992, 1993, 1994, and 1995 who are interested to participate to email us at mail_at_singaporeathletics.org.sg so that we can arrange a trial during the 72nd Singapore Open Track & Field Championships held on 18th and 19th of September. The trials incorporated into the Singapore Open will take into consideration the difference in implements used by the boys and girls in SEA Junior Championships.
Alternatively, athletes may use results obtain in the Wings Track and Field Meet 2010 on 25th September 2010 to qualify.
Singapore Athletic Association invites all Singaporean youth and junior athletes born in 1992, 1993, 1994 and 1995 to participate in the 5th South East Asian Junior Athletics Championships in Thailand.

The Entry Standards for the respective events are listed in the table below. The Entry Standards in bold are set at the average bronze medal performance calculated based on the bronze medal performance in the previous 3 editions of the SEA Junior Athletics Championships. The Gold Medal average standards are also listed for references.
Trials will be conducted during Singapore Open Championships (18/19 September 2010) for interested athletes to achieve the entry standards. Please contact us online, to sign up for the trials if you do not have official results achieved during the qualifying period listed under the conditions for validity of performances.
The 16 pre-selected athletes for Asian Area Qualification Meet for the Youth Olympics Games will be included for the championships. However, please inform us through email your interest in participation.
* Results omitted as there were only 3 competitors where the bronze medal performance was distinctively lower than that of previous editions.
† As the Girls’ 2000m Steeplechase was not featured in the previous edition of SEA Junior Championships (also not in ASEAN Schools Games and Asian Junior Championships where 3000m Steeplechase was competed instead), the qualifying standard of Girls 2000m Steeplechase was calculated based on the comparative study done on the 2007 and 2009 World Youth Championships where Girls 2000m Steeplechase was competed for the first 2 times. It was found that the girls’ performance was consistently around 115% of the boys. Hence, the average percentage of 114.75% over the two editions’ third placing was used to calculate the probable performance of the third placing in the coming SEA Junior Championships.
Conditions for Validity of Performances
- All performances must be achieved during the period 1 July 2010 to 30 September 2010.
- All performances must be achieved during competitions organised or sanctioned by SAA.
- Performances achieved in mixed events (between male and female participants), held completely in the stadium are accepted.
