With the recent Government announcement of stage 3 lockdowns the Knox City Council has now advised that the track needs to be closed for all activities. This means both the pavilion and the track, including individual use.
We understand this is frustrating, but please try & stay active. You can train in public parks, but with no more than two (2) people (unless all living under the same roof) & be careful
If you do not have a training program, talk to one of our coaches.
The Knox Little Athletics Club intends to hold its AGM on Monday the 27th July 2020 at 7.30pm. (this was originally scheduled for the 27th April but was postponed due to COVID-19.)
We will monitor whatever restrictions are in place at the
time as far as numbers go, but we intend to go ahead even if we have to run it
Each club will need have at least one representative attend. As you can appreciate the whole COVID-19 situation is dynamic & changing almost daily, so details will be communicated closer the 27th July.

ANZAC Day will never be cancelled, it’s just different
this year, but we can still support our veterans this ANZAC day by doing a
On April 25th , many of us
would normally attend one of the local ANZAC commemorative services at Bayswater RSL and the Boronia RSL or at the Shrine of
Remembrance in Melbourne.
As the Last Post is played during the
Dawn Service , RSL Victoria is asking everyone to #StandTo and #LightUpTheDawn
– to walk outside, stand in your yard, driveway, or on your balcony and observe
a minute of silence in respect of our veterans. Just grab a candle, a torch or
your phone and stand at the end of your driveway at 6am.
If you can, take a picture and share it
with loved ones or on social media using the hashtag #StandTo#LightUpTheDawn .
We also know what a huge difference all our donations make in helping veterans and their families in the community – accessing physical and mental healthcare, adjusting back to civilian life, and accessing the support they need to make ends meet. Think of every ANZAC Badge on every lapel in those crowds of thousands we’d usually see. Maybe you would’ve bought one at the train station on your way to work, or down the street from a local RSL volunteer.
Those donations are still vitally important – so if you can, please consider donating to the ANZAC Day Appeal here: https://anzacappeal.com.au/
Together, although we are apart, we can
amplify our commitment to the ANZAC spirit.

This applies to training, Centre competition, Centre Championships events, Open Days etc. Centres should give consideration to delaying proceeding with Presentation Days to a more suitable date.
