President’s Corner 27-01-2023

Hi everyone, another great week of competition with 164 PBs and a Centre Record! This week we are running Program B and we are anticipating low numbers, so please sign up for a duty, it’s lots of fun >  Sign up Duties 28th Jan

There is still lots of athletics left in the schedule, with State Relays next weekend, EMR T&F on Feb 18-19th and lots of fun events at Ringwood.  This Saturday is forecast to be hot in the afternoon, so we will be monitoring conditions through the morning to make sure our competition stays fun and safe.  Looking forward to seeing you all at the track.

Things to know – Information Hub

Training – Resumes Sundays and Tuesdays (weather permitting)

Training is back to normal and as always is subject to severe weather conditions.  We had  to cancel last Tuesday because of the lightning.   With the warmer weather now here, athletes should bring a water bottle, apply sunscreen, rest in a shaded area (when possible) and wear a hat. 

Athlete safety and care

Never leave your child by themselves at a training session or during a competition.  A parent or suitable guardian must be present at all times, in case your athlete needs any emergency medical care and for their safety at the track.

Dogs at the track – Reminder – Dogs not allowed at the track at any time during competition, you will be asked to leave.  This is guidance provided by the council and d Little Athletics Victoria.

Program updates

We are constantly tweaking our program to provide the best experience for our athletes..  Further minor amendments have been made to ensure that our athletes maximise their competition outcomes prior to EMR T&F..  Please reach out to us at ringwood@lavic.com.au,  or feel free to have a chat with me, I am happy to answer your queries.

State Relays – 4th Feb 2023

Don’t forget state relays are coming up fast so make sure your teams and athletes are sorted.  It would be worthwhile to schedule some practice runs in prior to the event.

NEW NEW  NEW- Sunday competition 5th Feb 2pm-5pm– Following State relays on Saturday 4th Feb, we are trialling a Sunday afternoon competition from 2pm-5pm.  There will be no training on Sunday morning the 5th Feb.

EMR Track and Field (T&F) 18th\19th Feb – Tom Kelly Athletics Track Doncaster

Registrations for this fantastic event scheduled on 18-19th Feb closes midday Monday 30th January.  You must compete in this event and achieve qualifying results to compete in State T&F.

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 6 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.

Hurdles Clinics – Feb 12th Sunday 9am

We have the pleasure of inviting our senior hurdles coach, Peter Benifer, to run two hurdles clinic sessions.  Expressions of interest will be provided shortly for those athletes competing in hurdles at EMR T&F.

U6-U8 Clinics – Feb 12th Sunday 9am

U6-U8s will have the chance to improve their skills and techniques.  We will send out expressions of interest to these athletes shortly.
