President’s Corner 19-01-2023

Hi everyone, it was a great start to 2023, with the 4 pillars event.  It was good to see such strong numbers from Ringwood and I think we easily out numbered Doncaster, Nunawading and Box Hill.  Well done to the athletes that achieved a trophy and to all athletes that participated. 

This week we are running Program A and is a normal competition week.  We are anticipating low numbers again as families enjoy a break, so we please ask for parents to sign up for a duty using the sign up genius link, OR on the morning as there will be gaps.  Looking forward to seeing you all at the track.

Registration Pricing – DOWN, DOWN Prices are DOWN

Over the Christmas break the RLAC committee decided to reduce our membership fees for the remainder of this season to $119 as a flat fee.  What do you get?  There are still 7 weeks of Ringwood home competitions to go and it includes the Winter Cross Country season.  Tell your friends.

Ringwood Centre Games 18th March 2023 8am-4pm – Save the date

Centre Games Championship is our last competition day.  The format will remain the same as last year where athletes can select any number of events, depending on their age group.  It usually runs longer than our normal competition day, so we ask that parents save the date now.

Training – Resumes Sunday 22nd Jan (weather permitting)

This weekend the weather is forecast to be great.  With the warmer weather upon us, remember to keep hydrated, get the suncream on, wear a hat and monitor your athlete’s health.
