President’s Corner 08-03-2023

Hi everyone, as we approach the end of the Track & Field season, it was great to see so many athletes compete and achieving a whopping 228 PBs and an amazing 7 centre records, including a number of very old records falling.  It is great to see that all that training and competition is delivering such great results.

This week is our last week of normal competition and is Program A.  It is our one and only Friday night twilight, so will be lots of fun.  This is the last week before our Centre Games, so I would encourage you to compete in as many events as possible.  This week we have Shot Put and Discus for U13-U16s, so warm up is 5:15pm and 5:30pm for those age groups, everyone else starts warm up from 5:45pm, with first event at 6:00pm.

Don’t forget to sign up for a duty here, we need you:

Things to know – Information Hub

This is our last week of competition of the 2022-2023 summer T&F and we conclude on 18th March with our Boost Health Collective Centre Games.

Ringwood Centre Games 18th March 2023 8am-4pm – It will be all day – Save the date

I am currently working through programming with all the entries.  Note that all entries entered have been determined as being eligible, so we hope to see all athletes entered at our Centre Games.

SAFETY Announcements – Please be aware of the following at competition and training:

  • Never stand inside the discus nets or sector area while athletes are throwing;
  • Never walk across the infield;
  • Always wear closed toed shoes at the track, so no thongs;
  • Do not lean on the Fencing at the 100m start line.

State Track and Field 11\12th March – Ringwood has 40 athletes competing at state, well done champs.  Duties have been sent out.  You must perform a duty, or pay for your duty otherwise your athlete cannot compete.

Sunday 12th March Training is cancelled due to non-availability of coaches and key members of Team Ringwood who will be at State Saturday and Sunday.

AGM and awards presentation day – This is officially scheduled for Saturday 1st April (not a joke) from 10am -12pm.  More information will be provided prior.  Weather permitting, we hope to have some fun activities for the athletes.

Cross Country – coming soon

As part of your membership, you can compete in the cross-country events during the cooler months on Sunday mornings from about 9am-10.30am.  There is also a Saturday session hosted by our friends at Knox, if you can’t make Sundays.  This is a great way for athletes to keep fit and connected to each other in the “down time”.   Team Manager needed – We need someone to assist Belinda this cross-country season.  Its very easy and non-time consuming.  Please email ringwood@lavic.com.auto express your interest.

Have a question? Have a suggestion? For any queries feel free to send an email to ringwood@lavic.com.au

See you at the track,

Jason (RLAC President)
