ResultsHQ – How to view your Results
Last season the centre moved to the Timing Solutions online results system for storing all results information from regular season meets. Families can log in to review their childrens results across the season, print tickets for each performance (if desired) and generally see how they are improving over time. Results take a few days to enter into the system, with the exception of the races run on the straight track where the timing gate results are uploaded within a few hours of the meet. To access results families can log into ResultsHQ by following the steps set out at the following link: ResultsHQ Your username (for all children in your family participating) is the email address that you used to register this season. Passwords can be obtained by following the “forgot my password” process explained on the web page link above.
