> achievement levels
The McDonalds achievement levels are a list of performance goals for events that athletes participate in. The McDonald's achievement levels are calculated from the averages of performances attained by Little Athletics Queensland athletes over the years. A regular review of the levels is conducted at least every three years.
The goals are broken into 4 levels, allowing athletes to continue to set achievement goals throughout the season:
GREEN : Achievable by most athletes with application
RED : Very good performance achieved by approximately 65% of athletes
BLUE : Excellent performance achieved by approximately 20% of athletes
GOLD : Based on performance mark halfway between the BLUE level and the Australian Best performance for an event. This level is not awarded a certificate but is used to provide further goals once a BLUE level is achieved.
