Return to Competition Update from Ross Cunningham 5th Nov 2020

Following the update from the Victorian Government and advice received from DHHS and Sport and Recreation Victoria, there are some important changes to our original proposed calendar.

The original plan was to stage an event on Friday 13th November as part of our Friday Night Athletics at Lakeside. However, due to the restrictions relating to groups of 10 and no mixing/crossovers of those groups, we have had to adjust the format of this event. There will no longer be an event held at Lakeside on that evening. However, we have engaged the AVSL Committee and Club contacts to investigate providing opportunities on the evening of Friday 13th November to assist in extending opportunities to participants.

Further information and details will be provided to members in due course. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to email sportdelivery@athsvic.org.au
