Knox LAC has received advice from our supplier of the EFTPOS terminal that we have a faulty terminal and need to return it to the supplier to be repaired. This means there will be no EFTPOS available this weekend at the canteen or the uniform shop.
Purchasing Uniform If you need to purchase Knox LAC uniform on Sunday it is preferred that that you do so via the online Knox LAC shop and collect it on Sunday. If you are proposing to buy uniform on Sunday in person we ask that people bring the correct money for items that you will be buying.
For those athletes competing at the State Combined Championships on the 30-31st January & EMR in February, the uniform shop will be open on Sunday 17th from 3pm to 5pm in the pavilion near the canteen.
Full range of Knox singlets & crop tops are in stock.
Online ordering and payment is preferred. To order online visit our Knox LAC Shop here. Collection of online orders will be from the pavilion on the 17th Jan.
If you prefer, you can purchase uniform in person on the 17th Jan.
The Knox coaches as in previous years will be running a combined events practice day the weekend before State Combined Events. This is a great way to get event specific assistance from the coaches to assist you to be your best the weekend after.
This special coaching session is open to all athletes from U9 and up, regardless of whether you are entered for Combined events and will replace the Sunday morning throws & sprints coaching.
