Firstly, congratulations to our XC team this year, wrapping up this weekend at the Tan Relays. What we lack in numbers we make up for in spirit! The 2019/2020 Track and Field season kicks off in under two weeks. Make sure you have everything prepared to start competing!
Registration is open via the AV members portal. For athletes using our training facilities, please be registered by Thursday the 26th, as the club is liable without insurance for athletes. Otherwise, please register ASAP to be able to enter the first round of AV Shield League (October 5th). If there are any financial concerns or if you’re a new member looking to sign up, there are various packages available with more information available here.
Athletics Victoria Shield League
Don’t know what AV Shield League is? AVSL is the new competition format for this season. Athletes will no longer compete in age groups, and will instead compete as a whole club in divisions, with the opportunity to go head to head at the end of the year to find out who comes out on top! We’re really excited here at the club about the new format and hope to see our athletes make the most of the competition. More information on the new structure can be found here.
Hopefully everyone has picked up our new uniform. Everyone who can has to compete in the new uniform, as we are phasing out the old singlets. There will be leeway for the start of the season and new members until orders arrive, but we want everyone in the new tops by the end of the season! The uniform store can be found here or at Project Clothing. A reminder that in competition athletes must wear either club or black shorts, this is our specified uniform with AV.
The Results Hub will be the go to place for all results, rankings and ladders for Victorian Competition. Get familiar with navigating the page here.
The 2019/2020 Summer Handbook hasn’t been released yet, but keep your eyes on the AV website for it to pop up!
Hopefully everyone has had a look ahead at some of the competitions coming up this season. With the AV Shield League will come a specialised relay round and Nitro round, as well as the multiple Specialist meets and state competitions. The Calendar can be found here.
Casey Cardinia has allocations at Casey Fields on Tuesday and Thursday nights. All members are encouraged to make the most of our facilities.
