Apart from the obvious fun of running “Off road” in varied conditions, the kids love the team
atmosphere, the fitness and cross country training for other sports, the shorter competition and of
course the awards days and individual and team medals up for grabs throughout the season!

Many schools are now making XC more of a thing, and every season the local Little Aths kids top the
tables in the school competitions at all levels. We’ve had many Ringwood XC athletes make SSV Team
Vic, and every athlete above U8’s can compete up to state level in the LAVic competition.

So how does it all work?
JOIN THE TEAM
1. I’m already a Ringwood LAC member and want to join Cross Country…..
Your 2020/2021 Track and Field registration fees include participation in the Cross Country
season. All you need to do is come along with your Commonwealth Bank patch.

2. I need to register for the 2021 Cross Country season……
You might be joining for the first time or you might have been a Cross Country member last
year who is returning for this season. Jump onto the LAVic website www.lavic.com.au and join
via the “Get involved” link on the bottom of the first page. Registration cost $60 ($55 LAVic fee
and $5 Ringwood fee)

3. I want to Come and Try before committing…
Athletes who wish to complete in a trial, should follow the process in point 2 for non-registered
athletes, except for processing payment. Once you have decided to participate in the full
season you will simply need to process payment.
