COVID-19 Return to Sport Update: Friday 3rd July 2020

As per Little Athletics Victoria’s update to members this week, it has been announced that sadly the 2019/20 State Track and Field Championships are officially cancelled, along with the upcoming State Cross Country Championships in August. It has been a difficult decision but given the escalating COVID-19 infection rates in the Victorian community the risk is too high.

However on a somewhat positive note, LAVIC is still trying to facilitate localised cross country competition and permitting approved clubs to re-commence training. There are a number of protocols that need to be implemented to minimise the risk to athletes and become an approved centre to train.

Box Hill LAC COVID-19 Safe Officials Needed
As the first step to re-commencing training and competition at Box Hill LAC, we must have at least one volunteer COVID-19 Safe Official or a few volunteers to assist this role. The main objective of this role is to implement and ensure compliance of COVID-Safe protocols at Box Hill LAC.
