Little Athletics registrations are now OPEN! Let's hope that we are able to be back at the track and enjoying family, fun and fitness soon!!
As we approach what in a normal year would be the start of our Bendigo Little Athletics and Bendigo Region/Athletics Victoria summer competitions, Athletics Bendigo General Manager, Terry Hicks provides an update on where we are placed for a start date as much as we know it at present.
Following the announcement from Premier Daniel Andrews this afternoon, Victoria will move into Stage 4 Lockdown from 11.59pm tonight (Friday 12th February 2021) until Wednesday 17th February 2021. We are providing advice from Athletics Victoria, Athletics Bendigo and Little Athletics Bendigo about a number of upcoming competitions that will now be cancelled. Please note the following local Athletics Bendigo and Little Athletics Bendigo events are cancelled: - Saturday 13 February – AVSL Round 7 - Saturday 13 February & Sunday 14 February – Little Athletics Regional Championships - Tuesday 16 February – Tuesday Night Track Series
How exciting that Little Athletics will be returning to Bendigo on the last weekend in October with online registrations now open for new and returning athletes. Stay tuned as the Bendigo Little Athletics Committee is currently finalising the 2020/21 Competition Calendar. The cost for registration will be $110.00 per child for the season and there is a free trial offer available for new Little Athletes, too.
2020 has seemed to make our Little Athletes more eager than ever to hit the track! The Bendigo Little Athletics Committee (BLAC) have been taking the necessary steps required by Little Athletics Victoria (LAVIC) to comply with the new COVID-Safe Protocols. The good news is that once LAVIC has approved our Centre for COVID-Safe competition for the 2020/2021 season, the registration portal will be opened, competition dates will be announced and competition will commence. We are hoping to have more information on this by mid-October. At the BLAC AGM held on 25th August 2020 the following volunteer members were voted into Executive and General Committee positions. We also have TWO vacant Committee Positions that need to be filled. Will you fit the bill?
