The Auckland Cup is an ability-based race meet
This means that skaters will be placed in racing grades/groups with other skaters of any age but similar ability. This makes for closer racing and a better racing experience than sometimes happens in age-based races. Groups may also be combined or extended depending on entries and time allocation.
Saturday 24 July 2021 9:45am-12:45pm
The Cup will be awarded at the conclusion of the event. The winner will be determined by the mutual decision of the attending Referees and Cub Officials. The awarding of the Cup will be based on:
- superb Effort
- excellent Sportsmanship
- outstanding Integrity, Brilliant Results
- showing Potential, and
- other factors deemed relative.
DISTANCES and GRADING GROUPS
Distances and groups will be subject to entries. We reserve the right to amend both distances and groups according to the entries, to ensure the best racing for all competitors. We will be aiming to have heats and finals with the longest distance in each group being a Super Final.
Relay teams will be decided by the Event Organizers once entries are closed; skaters will be notified of their teams. Relays will only be held if time permits.
Competitors are not guaranteed inclusion in a relay team.
- All skaters (other than those from overseas) should be registered with ISSNZ.
- There will be no refund of entry fee for any skater who withdraws after the closure of entries except if the withdrawal is on medical grounds. Any such refund is only given at the discretion of the organizing committee.
- A withdrawal from a heat/semi-final other than due to incapacity or injury immediately prior to the start of a race shall be notified to the Competitor Steward not less than 30 minutes prior to the start of the competition/event.
- A seeding time should be stated on the entry form. A seeding time in this instance is your personal best time, for the distance that is relative to your age and ability, from within the previous 12 months. If no seeding time is provided, skaters will be placed in heats/races at the discretion of the race organisers.
- Properly completed entry forms accompanied by the correct entry fee must be sent to the Club at the address shown by the closing date. Only one skater per entry form.
Safety helmets, approved cut-resistant neck guards, gloves (not knitted), knee pads and shin pads are compulsory equipment for competitors in short track championships. Skaters must wear full skinsuits, or similar attire which must be close-fitting with no areas of skin exposed other than the face. Blades must have tubes closed and blade ends rounded off with a minimum radius of 10mm.
This event will be conducted under the current General and Championship Rules of Ice Speed Skating New Zealand. These will apply in conjunction with the Rules of the International Skating Union where applicable.
Training for Race Officials
Learn how to do some of the roles officials have during competitions
All races require competitors and officials. And as a community-run sport, we need everyone to get involved. Don’t panic! You don’t have to pull on a pair of skates to be an official. There are a number of key roles that take place off the ice, and they are the perfect place for parents, caregivers, and siblings to start.
When you register skaters on the form below, please indicate which roles you are currently able to do or willing to learn. We’ll go over them during Friday’s ice training and you will put them into practice during the competition on Saturday.
Key roles we will be training people in at this camp are:
- Heat box (checking skaters before they enter the track for their race)
- Runner (making sure any paperwork gets to whoever needs it)
- Timekeeper & Chief timekeeper (how to time a race and record it)
- Lap counter (bell, board, and calling the laps)
- Finish line judge (keeping track of who finishes in which position)
In competitions, officials work as a team. You are never on your own—the various roles back each other up.
