Concurrent Competitions

This event is being held in conjunction with the Victorian State Combined Events Championship, HVC and Rare Air.  As the Combined Events competition is a State Championship, these events will take precedence for event sites, both track & field and may delay the start of the HVC, AV Throwers or Rare Air events.  We have timetabled the events so that there are no delays, however circumstances on the day may mean there could be a delay. However, to keep the program running to time, start times will not be held for late athletes.

SHOE DECLARATION – National Permit Meets

As all HVC meets are National Permit meets, Open & U20 athletes are required to complete an AV online Shoe Declaration Form prior to their first HVC meet. Any State Record, National Record or International qualifying performance will not be ratified without a Shoe Declaration being submitted.

Athletes are to wear shoes that comply with the World Athletics Shoe Rule. For a current list of compliant shoes, please download the latest list: World Athletics Shoe Compliance List (as of 17 December 2021)
