Club Records & Awards


SAMA Club Records

The historical and current South Australian State Age Group (SAG) records (SAMA Club Records) can be viewed as a web file. See also the bottom of this page for other viewing and downloading options.

All SAMA and ASA members are eligible to set new SAG Records , but in doing so the Rules relating to setting records must be complied with. Where applicable, records can only be accepted when Masters Technical Specifications are used.

If you believe that you have set a new Club Record, please notify the SAMA Statistician, Ros Lowe. We try to keep aware of new record performances, but the onus is on the athlete achieving the record to ensure that it is notified to the SAMA Statistician for ratification.

SA Citizen of the Year 2020

Congratulations to SAMA member Allan Mayfield who received the award of South Australian Citizen of the Year at the Australia Day 2020 awards night.

"It has been said that very few people within the Clare Valley have not benefited in some way from the work achieved by Allan Mayfield. An agronomist by trade, demonstrating strong leadership with a practical and conciliatory approach towards problem solving, Allan has also devoted himself to numerous community events and committees.

Allan has increased the profile of Clare, not only in SA, but also nationally and internationally. From securing funding from Federal and State Governments to extend The Riesling Trail, contributing to the community through Lions, to liaising with local governments and discussing issues with landowners, Allan has established himself within the community as a committed individual working to improve the lives of the people of Clare and Gilbert Valleys Council."

SAMA Awards

SAMA Athletics Awards

Each year awards are made for athletic excellence in our club. The timeframe is a calendar year so summer competitors must perform well over two seasons. Categories for these awards parallel Australian Masters Athletic Awards and category winners are nominated to the AMA. Click here for information on the SAMA Athletic Awards.

A summary of the SAMA Athletic Awards for 2019 is available to download. The winners will be presented with their trophies at a later date, since the Summer Presentation Night on 1/4/2020 was cancelled due to the COVID-19 Pandemic.

SAMA Achievers Award

In 2020 the SAMA Achievers Award has been introduced to recognise individual athletes who strive from week to week to improve their performance ratings but who may not necessarily be at a “high” standard.

The Achievers Award will be applicable only to financial members of SA Masters Athletics (SAMA) and based on their performances during the weekly SAMA competitions (for full details refer to the PDF).

The three athletes scoring the highest award points total will each receive Awards consisting of a Certificate and gift card. The Winner will also receive a Trophy.
