New AV Shield Final entry process

Athletics Victoria will be introducing some changes to the entry process for Clubs for the AV Shield Final to ensure this historic and monumental event creates a memorable atmosphere for both athletes and Clubs.

 The 2014 Shield Final will have:

– Live results on handheld devices,

– Live scoring updates

– A commentary team to call the track and field action and

– A streamlined timetable to deal with any event or athlete clashes.

Eligible Clubs will need to ‘pre enter’ teams for the Shield Final and submit them to AV by midday (12pm) on Monday 7 April.

AV will then seed each event based on this season’s performance (as has happened with some events in previous years) and then publish the start lists on the Thursday prior to the Final. Changes can be made to the Club Team up to 30 mins prior to the advertised event start time on the day (Saturday 12 April ) at athlete check-in.

**Eligibility and Results can be viewed at:

Athletes should notify their Clubs of their availability. Club Entry forms have been sent to Club Managers and should only be submitted by Club Managers

If you have any questions about the pre entry form please call the Athletics Victoria competitions team on 03 8646 4500.
