First Competition Day and Opening Ceremony – Saturday 21 November 2020


With our first competition day on Saturday, there are a few things that the Centre would like everyone to be aware of for a smooth start to the season.

This week is Program A and starts at 8.30 sharp. An opening ceremony will be held from 10am and the program will resume at the completion of the ceremony.

Athletes are reminded to wear their competition club singlets, and wear the name patches pinned to the front of the top. New and trialing athletes should wear comfortable sports wear to compete in.
Club team managers will receive name patches tomorrow morning to hand out to their athletes that registered and paid prior to Thursday. Registered Athletes will need to head to their club first to collect their name patch before starting events. Trialing athletes will receive a temporary patch from the registration desk when they arrive.

Covid Safety
Covid Safety Rules must be adhered to. Please take the time to read through and familiarise yourselves with our requirements. We expect all families to comply with these rules. You can get further information on our Covid 19 page here
Please limit movement around the track unless escorting children to events. Remember to be socially distant while you at your clubs, as well as while you are moving around the venue. Covid Safety Officers will be in place to ensure everyone is complying with protocols. Please follow their directions.

Venue Entry
Entry to the venue on Saturday morning is via the Grandstand entry gates (Southern End). You will not be able to access the venue via the turnstile end. Contact tracing sign in will be in place.
Please ensure you arrive early to have enough time to sign in. QR codes will be posted near the entry for people to use. There will be a manual sign available as well.
The QR is available on the Knox LAC website here for people to print and keep with them. You can then use when you arrive to sign in and avoid delays at the the entry gate. Covid Safety Officers will be on duty at the entry gate to ensure everyone entering signs in for covid contact tracing.

Please note – No spectators are permitted. Only athletes, officials and parents required for duty are to attend. Additional parents/guardians are permitted for the purposes of supervising children if needed. No additional family members or spectators are permitted.

Signing In for Duty
Parents on duty are reminded that they must also sign in for duty. The duty sign in table will be located at the end of the shade sails at the Pavillon end as per last season. Please ensure you have signed in by 8.15am, at your event by 8.25am, and ready to start at 8.30am. We suggest arriving early to sign in for duty.

Canteen Service
Due to the covid restrictions in place for indoor areas, the canteen will only have a limited service. There will be no coffee service from the canteen until restrictions are eased. Please note that the social distancing must be adhered to if buying anything from the canteen.

Lets stay safe and have a great first meet at little aths!
