19/20 Cross Country season cancelled

All – for the purposes of giving clarity to Regions & Centres for the coming weeks in these unprecedented times of disruption, LAVic has made the following decisions with respect to the upcoming Cross Country season and Little Athletics activities.

Cross Country season

The following 19/20 Cross Country season activities are cancelled:

  • Centre & ‘combined’ Centre Cross Country activities, including Open Days
  • Cross Country Relay Championships (30.05.20)
  • Region Cross Country Carnivals (20.06.20 & 21.06.20)
  • Sandown Road Relays (11.07.20)

A decision will be made by 31.05.20 about whether the State Cross Country Championships (01.08.20) will proceed on that date – if at all.

Little Athletics activities

Following on from the LAVic correspondence of 16.03.20 ‘Coronavirus update’, LAVic directs all competition and training related Little Athletics activities to cease immediately. This will remain in place until 01.07.20, unless otherwise advised. This is in line with conditions outlined by Little Athletics Australia in its ‘Statement to the Little Athletics Community’ from 18.03.20.

Our insurer, V-Insurance, has made it very clear that claims resulting from non-sanctioned Little Aths activities occurring during the current time won’t be approved.

Centre administration, planning, governance and related matters should still proceed where possible, whilst adhering to COVID-19 related Government imposed measures such as social distancing, hygiene etc.
