Welcome to QMA
Queensland Masters Athletics Association (QMA) promotes fitness, fun and friendship through a range
of athletic activities for everyone, from beginner to age group elite standard. Membership starts from 30 years through to 100+.
Competition is conducted in 5 year age divisions, .e.g. M40-44, W55-59. The association currently has around 400 members from all walks of life, all levels of ability and all parts of Queensland and northern New South Wales.
The Track and Field competition in Southern Queensland is usually conducted from October through to March/April. The Summer Track and Field Program leads up to the State Championships usually held in March and the National Championships which are usually held over the Easter long weekend with the
host state changing each year on a rotational basis. Queensland will host the Nationals again in 2020.

Current QMA Members may REGISTER HERE for the competition on Wednesday 21st October.

All QMA members, visiting athletes, officials, volunteers, spectators, family, and friends attending Brisbane Competition meets need to read and adhere to the Covid-19 Requirements.
Members attending the QMA competition at the SAF track on Saturday morning, please check important information on this map. ENTRY and EXIT thru the small gate near the canteen building. STOP at sign-in and sanitiser station on your left - EVERYBODY must sign-in here - athletes, accompanying persons (including children) and all volunteers. If you have not pre-entered, entry sheets (the pink and blue ones) will be located at the next table. Then enter the WHITE BUILDING as indicated to pay ground fees. Please have correct money ($10) and observe distancing markers. EXIT via the other door.
THANK YOU FOR YOUR COOPERATION.
Accept a challenge! Just ask.
How many events do you intend to participate in? Try another event.
At the first 2 competition meets of the season, the majority of athletes did 1, 2, or 3 events. Often 3 throws or 3 sprints.
A handful of athletes are doing 5 or more events.
Be like the thrower that added in a sprint event. Have a throw or a jump or line up on the track. If you have never done an event before, your successful performance will be at least a Season Best, if not a Lifetime Best.
Bring along a friend, partner or family member to have a go. If you are competing in 1 or 2 events, volunteer to help out at a field event or operate the wind gauge.
Just ask and someone will show you how. We all had to learn in the beginning.
