What about Starters?

To become a starter you must attend a starters seminar – this is different to the Chief Officials training. It’s free, and you get an LAVic starters polo, cap and certificate.

To register for a seminar, go to the LAVic Website select ‘Starters Seminars’, and following the instructions.

Upcoming seminars: Sun 21Sep at Collingwood, Wed 8Oct at Coburg, Sun 12Oct at Knox.

Once you have done this, the comp committee will put you on their list and buddy you up with one of Knox’s other starters until you are proficient.
