Athletics Victoria will again release a 6-round Summer Special Package for rounds 7-12 of Shield for the 2017/18 Season.
This allows athletes registering to be eligible to score points for their club and have access to the online pre-entry system.
If you compete in at least 3 of the remaining Shield rounds, you will be eligible to compete at the Shield final, should your team qualify. However, an athlete must have a ranking in that event for their nominated age group, as per the 2017/18 AV Shield rules.
The Summer Special Package will become available from 9am Monday, 20th November. Please note that in Geelong Region, Round 7 will be held on Sunday 26th November, with all other zones and regions holding Round 7 on Saturday 2nd December.
Both package options can be purchased when completing membership, by selecting either ‘2017/18 T&F Package’ or ‘Summer Special T&F Package’ option from the Membership Registration page or alternatively through the ‘Events’ tab once your membership has been approved by your club.
