team event allocations – done!

Team Captains have now allocated team members to events according to “the matrix profile”. Make sure you know which events you’re down for, then get training! Familiarise yourself with all the rules. Most events will have a practice session so you know what to do. Look out for emails from the event leaders. Last minute substitutes are allowed as long as the substitute is already registered to participate in the Games.


games event calendar for 2016

The event calendar outlines the scheduled times for each event, its location and the co-ordinating team.  This year’s Events Co-ordinator is Mark Merrick who can be contacted via events@gvg.org.au if you have any queries. Some last minute changes are in progress, so keep your eyes peeled for the next update.

clarification of the age matrix rules

With the exception of Golf in which there are no age or restrictions, all events compete with 50/50 males and females,  with the event allocation for each age group per team split evenly between male and female, i.e. if the matrix indicates 2 competitors from a given age group, one must be male and one female.

Age criteria is based on the age of the individual on 2nd December 2016.

There can be no substitutions over the 20-39 age-group, (eg 40 year old substituting for a 16-19 year old) and competitors in the 20-39 age group cannot cross out of their age group.

Team members aged 16-19 may be substituted up one level into the 20-39 age group, and those younger than 16-19 may be substituted up two levels.  E.g. a 17 year old can be substituted into the 20-39 age group; a 12 year old may be substituted into 16-19 age group but not into 20-39 age group.

Team members aged 40-49 may be substituted down one level and those older than 40-49 may be substituted down two levels.  E.g.  a 60+ may be substituted into the 40-49 age group, but not the 20-39 group.
