Remaining weeks of 2020-2021 season

Just a quick reminder that after this week (Sat 6th FEB) there are only 3 more weeks of regular competition (including a Twilight event on Fri 26th FEB) plus Championship Day on Sat 20th MAR.

We will be looking at filling the duty roster for these events over the course of next week.

If you would like to put your name forward for duties on any of these dates please contact John Sprunt (john.sprunt@architectus.com.au).

CommBank sponsorship of LAVic

With Commonwealth Bank coming on as the LAVic Gold Partner in place of Subway we need to update every athletes competition patch.

To try and do this as quickly as possible, we are asking that all athletes check-in with Naomi at our club area this Saturday morning before they make their way to their first event so we can put a Commonwealth Bank sticker over the Subway logo on the patch (we will not be reprinting patches for everyone with the new logo).

Any athletes who participated in last weekends LAVic State Combined Events Championship will already have the Commonwealth sticker so do not need to check-in.

Duty Roster – parent participation

Hi all,

A little bit of housekeeping – it is a requirement for families of all registered athletes to participate in weekly duties.

We ask that all families, including those with On-Trackers, make themselves available as requested throughout the course of the season. There are a number of families who do more than their fair share every week and all we are asking is that everyone pitches in and spreads the load.

Our duties on a weekly basis include chiefing/officiating two long jumps, back straight timing, 400m manual timing (as applicable), providing starters & walk judges and supervising On-Trackers.

For On-Trackers this may include being the On-Track Coordinator for a week (marshalling the kids at the club area, escorting them to the infield, assisting Craig and Elly as required and returning the kids to the club area).

John Sprunt coordinates the weekly duty roster and your ongoing support and assistance is essential as the centre is entirely volunteer run and without everybody contributing the centre will face the very real possibility of not operating and our kids will miss out on the opportunity to participate.

If you have any issues/concerns please contact the club via email.
