Good luck everyone competing – See you at the track.
With the rescheduling of the carnival and a number of athletes no longer able to compete at regionals or choosing to compete at AV State Champs we have had to revise the duty roster to suit. The updated duty roster can be download below
The duty roster has changed. You may not have the previous duty you were assigned. Please check your assigned duty. We have filled the duties required and there will be little chance of changing the roster.
Please note: Parent duty at EMR Track and Field Carnival is compulsory. A reminder that all parents agreed to the condition of undertaking duty when registering. Note: Knox LAC does enforce the following policy: If you do not turn up for the duty assigned to you, or you do not complete your duty as required, your child will be scratched from all their events and will take no further part at any regional or state competition. If you cannot do the duty assigned to you, you are responsible for finding another person to do that assigned duty, and advise the Knox LAC Team Manager without delay of the change.
Reminders for the Weekend

As Knox LAC is hosting the rescheduled regional carnival this weekend, our normal competition (Program B) scheduled for the 27th February will not go ahead and there is no opportunity to move the competition to Friday night due to set up occurring for the regional carnival.
If you are an U6-U8 athlete or you have not entered regionals, you have the weekend off. Enjoy the weekend and we will see you back at the track on the 6th March.
Knox LAC is having its Coles Community Round this Saturday the 20th of February 2021.
We will be celebrating Coles as a major sponsorship of Little Athletics and have scheduled a few fun activities for Saturday.
Firstly we ask that athletes and parents alike come dressed with a splash of Coles – This may simply be – come dressed in red, or be creative and let your minds run wild. Think clothing and accessories made out of Coles bags. We have 10 Coles vouchers to give away to the best dressed!
Name patches must still be worn and visible on any dress ups.
With the announcement today by the Victorian Government that the snap lockdown will end tonight (Wednesday) night at midnight, there are a number updates for everyone including todays announcements from LAVic
Knox Little Aths Normal Competition will resume on Saturday 20th Feb at 8.30am – Program C. The Track will be open from tomorrow for training/exercise. Please note that the track is booked for a school tomorrow and no access will be available while the school is at the track.
Regionals. EMR has been confirmed and rescheduled to the weekend of the 27th and 28th of February and will still be held at the Knox Track. This means that regional relays have been cancelled.
Please Note the following from LAVic:
LAVic is aware that the rescheduled date clashes with the AV State Championships – Week 2.
LAVic is working with both AV and the athletes concerned to provide an opportunity to minimise the consequences of this clash. A specific email with details will be sent to the athletes concerned.
LAVic will send out to all confirmed athletes a portal link, where they can login and scratch from events. Refunds will only be issued to those events scratched through the portal before the closing date.
Additionally, if athletes cannot attend the rescheduled Region Track & Field Carnivals, on either or both days, due to other reasons, if they scratch before the deadline of Tuesday 23rd February, LAVic will offer a refund to these athletes.
Any athlete that scratches after Tuesday 23rd February, will need to advise the Knox Team Manager so an athlete scratch form can be filled in and handed to the Region officials on the day, no refunds will be offered for scratching after 23rd February.
If you cannot make the rescheduled regional dates and will be scratching from events please advise the Knox Team Manager ASAP. This will enable the duty roster to be updated and any changes made to suit.
LAVic have advised that the registration portal for regionals will not be reopened, no further registrations will be accepted.
State Track & Field Championships is still planned to be held at Lakeside Stadium on Sat 13th – Sun 14th March and remains unchanged.
Region Relays Carnivals The result of the reschedule means that the Region Relays Carnivals have been cancelled. LA Vic is now instead working on conducting the Commonwealth Bank State Relays Championships on Sat 27th March and Sun 28th March at Casey Fields, Cranbourne as a direct entry for all age groups.
