Knox LAC AGM 24 – Results of Election of Committee Members

Knox LAC held its AGM on Wednesday 1 May 2024. Thank you to all our members and life members that attended. A special thankyou to Susan Laukens, Councilor for Frieberg Ward, for attending and for her support to Knox Little Athletics over the season.

We are pleased to announce the results of the Elections of the Executive Committee

Executive Committee for 24/25 Season

President – Susan Kindler
Vice President – Nathan Dux
Secretary – Megan Hartley
Treasurer – Kris Shipham
Registrar – Janine Kearsley

General Committee Members
David Kearsley and Jess Dux

Congratulations to Susan Kindler as the incoming president, and Knox welcomes Megan Hartley in to the role of Secretary and Jess Dux as a General Committee Member. And a big thank you to Nathan, Kris and Janine for returning to their roles.

It may come as surprise to some that David Kearsley has stepped down as President. David has decided to concentrate on family commitments interstate. David will still maintain a role with Knox as a general committee member assisting the Executive Committee for the up coming season. David will continue his coaching role over the summer season.

Knox LAC would like to thank David for his efforts as President over the last 4 seasons.

Call out for Help
With David reducing his roles in the center and spending much of his time interstate, the Committee is looking for members to assist with the upcoming cross country season, in particular someone to take on the Cross Country Chairperson role to manage the season and someone to look after competition including managing the event entries/results (results HQ and RaceHQ).

If you are interested in helping please contact the Knox President.

Knox Cross Country – Change to Opening Round and Updated Calendar

As posted last week, unfortunately we were not able to setout a suitable course around the Knox Park facilities with other sporting events on that weekend.

The proposed layout was not going provide a safe enough course for our athletes with the soccer games on and associated vehicle traffic. It was also going to significantly restrict spectating for families. the XC committee did have discussions with the soccer club and felt that in the best interest of both sports and safety of all athletes that cross country should be held at another location.

Therefore the first round of Cross Country has been moved to Tirhatuan Park, Dandenong.

The committee is still waiting for formal approval from Maroondah Council to use Eastfield Park on 11th May. We have mapped a course and will provide further details closer to the date.

You can download and updated calendar below.
