Athletics Victoria have released their 10 Round AVSL 2021-2022 Summer Calendar, set to commence on Saturday 13 November 2021.
Based on the Victorian Government’s Road Map, Athletics Victoria – and by extension Athletics Bendigo – is excited to announce an anticipated return to the summer competition on Saturday, 13 November 2021. This information is based on Victorian Government projections that Victoria will reach 80% fully vaccinated by 5 November.
However, this date is subject to change based on vaccination rates and government targets.
The information to be provided by the government will dictate the format and capacity limits of the summer season. In the coming weeks, this information will be released to Athletics Victoria in the Restricted Activity Directions for Sport.
Please note that until this time, entry to AVSL rounds is not yet open.
AV General Manager Sport Delivery and Government Ross Cunningham said he was excited to see community sport back in action:
“There is no doubt the past 18 months have been challenging. However, the Road Map gave us the confidence to complete the plans that will form our summer season. We are filled with enthusiasm at delivering athletics back to the communities that have missed the better part of 18 months of continued events,” Cunningham said.
“We thank the clubs, members, stakeholders and partners for their patience as we finalise details in line with government requirements.”
