AVSL 2021/22

The Victorian Government recently announced its roadmap to deliver the National COVID Plan, setting out the path to opening.

Based on this Roadmap, Athletics Victoria is excited to announce an anticipated return to the summer competition on Saturday, 13 November 2021. This information is based on Victorian Government projections that Victoria will reach 80% fully vaccinated by 5 November. However, this date is subject to change based on vaccination rates and government targets.

The information to be provided by the government will dictate the format and capacity limits of the summer season. In the coming weeks, this information will be released to Athletics Victoria in the Restricted Activity Directions for Sport. Please note that until this time, entry to AVSL rounds is not yet open. 


Contested during the summer season, from October to April, Athletics Victoria Shield League (AVSL) is our summer track and field competition. Your AV clubs battle it out for promotion and relegation.

To compete in AVSL, an AV membership and Summer package can be purchased; however, if you wish just to come and try, you can pre-enter online as a trialling participant for two rounds on us!

AVSL Gradings and Scoring

AVSL features five graded divisions.


Clubs are graded in ‘divisions’ according to their performances in the 2020/21 AVSL season.
Clubs compete against other clubs within that division.


The team with the highest accumulated points after each round are awarded maximum points.

AVSL Promotion and Relegation

AVSL features an automatic promotion and relegation system.

AVSL Playoffs take place in the final round of competition. These playoffs determine promotion and relegation for those in the playoff spots after round 12.

After 12 rounds of competition, the final AVSL Ladder placings dictate who will go head-to-head in the virtual AVSL playoffs round on Saturday 5th March 2021.

AVSL Powerplay

In AVSL, clubs are issued with one (1) Powerplay per season. Clubs can use their Powerplay on any round from Rounds 1-10 only. Clubs cannot use their Powerplay on the final playoffs round.

Powerplays will double the clubs’ ladder points for that round.

Strategy is key. Use your Powerplay wisely!
