Athletics Victoria has released a 6-round Summer Special Package for the remaining rounds of Shield for the 2016/17 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 2016/17 AV Shield rules.

The Summer Special Package can be purchased when completing membership, by selecting the ‘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.

To register to become an AV Member, you’ll need to head to athsvic.org.au (but you’re already here!) and follow these steps:

  1. Click on Members Portal (located top right of screen).
  2. Create a Profile.

  4. Select ‘Summer Special T&F Package’.
  5. Select either Open ($65), Junior ($55), and/or Dual ($30).
  6. Once the order has been processed (and approved from your Club), you’ll be eligible to compete during the final six (6) rounds of Shield.
  7. Our new pre-entry system will be available once approval has been received.
