High Velocity Club – Meet 4

March 7 @ 11:01 am

Date: Saturday 9th March 2024

Location: Lakeside Stadium, Albert Park.

GATES OPEN: 9am

Welcome to High Velocity Club; a short and fast format competition for sprinters, hurdlers and jumpers! This event is coming up soon, and to make sure it all goes smoothly we’ve put together some simple steps for you to follow.

Prior to the event, please ensure you read the below information.

SEVERE WEATHER WARNING:

Due to expected high temperatures on Saturday (37 degrees), the meet will commence 2.5 hours ealrier than the predicted DRAFT timetable. With consideration of the health and safety of our Officials, Support Staff, and Athletes, the first field event will begin from 10am with the first track event beginning at 10:30am, with the expectation the meet will conclude by 2pm, doing the best to avoid peak temperatures from 2pm-5pm. To ensure the meet can still go ahead, and operate as efficiently as possible, certian changes have been made to the schedule and competition management:

  1. All 100m and Hurdles events will be run on the front straight. This is to ensure relaible photofinish equipment is operational, and not have computers and cameras overheating on the back straight. Winds are expected to be Northerlies, which is favourable for a front straight tailwind at Lakeside. All 10 lanes will also be used for seeding.
  2. Only 13 Female and 13 Male competitors will be confirmed for Long Jump. Refunds will be given to those athletes who have nominated and are unsuccessful in securing a start. As the HVC meets are World Permit Meets, priority will be given to U20 and Open athletes chasing WA points, then higher ranked Junior athletes. (See competition detials below)

For all athletes, please take precaution when warming up and regulating body temperatures post competition. Seek shade, pack waterbottles, sunscreen, hats, sunglasses and any other Sun Safety equipment to protect yourselves during the meet. As always, First Aid will be present at the meet for emergencies.

Warm Up:

Hammer Throw competition will be contested outside the stadium, hence the outside Warm Up Area will be closed during this time, to warrant the safety of all athletes.

Warm Up may take place on the back straight, until the Hammer Throw event concludes at 11:15am. The Warm Up Area will then be re-opened from 11:30am.

There will be limited hurdles and training blocks supplied by MSAC for use.

Long Jump:

Only the Top 13 Female and Top 13 Male competitors have been selected to compete from final entries. This is to ensure timetabling runs on time and athletes and officials spend as little amount of time in the heat as possible. All competitors will recieve 3 jumps in competition, only the top 8 competitors after 3 rounds will recieve an additional 3 attempts. The remainder of the field will conclude their series.

Hammer Throw:

Expected numbers for Hammer Throw will be 11 competitors (9 Female, 2 Male). With the large number of Female Hammer Throws, only the top 8 Females after 3 rounds of competition will revieve a further 3 throws. Both Males will recieve 6 throws. This will ensure competition to run for roughly 1 hour and 10 minutes and conclude at 11:10am.
