Knox CC Champs Day and Presentation Night

Champs Day

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

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.
