The ‘Provisional Timetable’ should be used over and above the ‘Draft’ version. Athletics Victoria will notify all entrants via email and social media of changes to the timetable before the event commences. It is the responsibility of athletes, parents and coaches to check the timetable online 24 hours before competition, if you are unsure of the most up to date timetable, please do not hesitate to contact Athletics Victoria on 03 86464500.
Note: Athletes must be a member of Athletics Victoria or their state/national association in order to compete at State Championship events. Any athlete that enters, and does not meet this criteria, will be asked to become a member of their state association, otherwise they may not be able to compete.
Entry fees will only be refunded if a cancellation is received in writing to email@example.com prior to entries closing. Any refunds after this time will be processed only if the written notification is accompanied with a medical certificate before the first day of competition.
