Championship Day will be held on Saturday 9 August at Jells Park North (Waverley Road entry) and is open to ALL registered athletes – from Knox and other centres. The day is run like any normal day of competition with the addition of qualified Knox athletes (participated at 60% or more CC comp days) also vying for medals and bragging rights within their age group. The medals are handed out later that day at our end of season Presentation Night.
Presentation Night kicks off at 7pm at St Joseph’s Hall, Boronia (note the later start time this year) and the theme for the evening is to come along as your “Favourite Book Character”. This is a great way to wrap up our cross country season and I encourage all families to grab some nibbles and drinks (and don’t forget to bring the kids as well) and get along to St Joey’s Hall for a relaxed and enjoyable evening. See the flyer for more info.
Well done to all the Knox athletes who competed at the State Championships last weekend and a big thank you to those parents who assisted with duty. You can check out the photos. This coming Saturday, we return to normal competition at Tirhatuan Park and it would be good to see all athletes in attendance for their last run before Championship Day.
While the Commonwealth Games are held in Glasgow, the Knox Little Athletics Centre invites schools in the Knox region to participate in the Little Athletics Program for Schools – LAPS.
The program involves an Athletics Development Officer (ADO) from Little Athletics Victoria and a representative from the Knox Little Athletes Centre visiting schools and conducting a modified athletics session.
- Provides a fun packed athletics session for students in Prep to Grade 4.
- Activities teach fundamental motor and athletics skills, that are age appropriate and caters for all ability levels.
- Sessions are 45 minutes each, and limited to 30 students (one class) per session, up to 6 sessions per day.
- Enables schools to create a direct link with the Knox Little Athletics Centre.
- On successful completion of the program and after a copy of the school’s newsletter advertising Little Athletics is sent to LAVic, a free CD resource is supplied.
If you would like the LAPS to visit your school, please complete the booking form and send it to firstname.lastname@example.org. If you are a student wanting us to visit your school, you can print the form and hand it to your PE teacher.
For more information, please contact Claire Lillie (School Liaison Co-ordinator) on 0421 300 467.
