Duty Roster
The roster has been setup so that each family will do similar amounts of time on duty for the days they are at the Combined Event.  Duty is based on the number of athletes a family has competing.  A family with 2 competing athletes would be required to complete 2 duties. Please note your duty and time and ensure that you report to our team manager 15 minutes before the start of your duty time. As the duty roster is set, there will be little chance of changing it. 

Please note: Parent duty at State Combined Event is compulsory. Parents must complete their duty at the allotted time.
Knox LAC does enforce the policy that any family that does not turn up for duty, or complete their allotted duty – their child will be withdrawn from competition and take no further part.

  • For the Track events, there is a call room, located at the 100mt start end, next to the VIS building. There will be 3 marquees, clearly visible as you look at the 100mt start line. All athletes will be called to the Track call room in their age group and will compete at the same time, separated into heats.
  • The timetable is only an indication of the times, in Combined Events, the athletes are called to their next event, it is essential that athletes and parents are listening for all announcements. Athletes are not to run across the track or jump the fence, spread around the track are gates, and officials on each Gate will manage the athletes entering the track.

Good luck to all of those Knox Athletes that have entered State Combined Events.
