> 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.
