Welcome to the Synergy League Draft! The teams are ready to reveal their teams after 200 athletes who have entered the draft!

We invite you to attend the OFFICIAL DRAFT PRESENTATION on Sunday Feb 4th from 5PM at SA Athletics Stadium, where the Team Managers will reveal their teams in draft pick order!

From entering the draft, athletes chosen events and respective Season Bests/Personal Bests were used to determine a Draft Ranking list for both TRACK and FIELD.

So... what happens now?

Firstly, ensure you are following Synergy League Athletics on Facebook and Instagram.

The Team Managers have met and selected their teams with full confidentiality.
They had the difficult task of filling out the below competition format, ensuring all track athletes compete on both nights, while field only on their event night + a potential novelty event to be advised.

Each team need to fill 2 athletes per track event (1 per relay leg) and 1 athlete per field event, all while managing an athlete ranking points cap! Athletes can only compete in the events they nominated for, except for relays. Athletes will be notified closer to the event by team managers if they are in a relay opposed to an event.

This works out to be 16 Track athletes and 8 Field Athletes per team.

So... Which team gets pick #1?

Yesterday (Feb 1st) we revealed the picking order for the first 4 picks.
WATCH HERE

TRACK: 1 Inferno, 2 Electro, 3 Sonic, 4 Cyclone
FIELD: 1 Sonic, 2 Electro, 3 Cyclone, 4 Inferno

The allocation of picks is a randomised process which will be explained when we reveal the full list picking order on Saturday. The Track Draft is run seperate to the Field Draft to provide managers with less difficulty in the picking process.

This means both Track & Field have their own set of Draft Pick Numbers.

If selected in a team, an athlete's Draft Pick Number will be shown on their exclusive Synergy Athlete Singlet. 

With the difficulty of managing a points cap, some lower ranked athletes may get picked earlier than higher ranked athletes. The depth of a particular event played into the strategy.

Please attend the OFFICIAL DRAFT PRESENTATION where the Team Managers will reveal all! From 5pm at SA Athletics Stadium Sunday Feb 4. 

Can't attend? Watch our social media channels after the presentation. A follow up email will also go out.
