Track Hire

Morrison Reserve Regional Athletics Facility is available all year round for bookings.

The multi-purpose venue can host the widest range of events and activities.

Yarra Ranges Athletics can assist with the booking of the venue, as well as equipment hire to make your event possible.

The venue can host the full range of athletics based sport activities on the all weather track, meeting all IAAF specifications. With excellent PA and lighting, you can host the largest crowd for either day or night events. A recently expanded large grandstand will shelter those attending.

Two huge track level shelters ensure officials and athletes have safe spaces while waiting between events.

From October to March, it may be possible to include the pavilion building for your event (additional hire fees apply, subject to availability).

How to book Morrison Reserve in 2021

Venue and equipment are currently two separate hire transactions. Morrison Reserve is a council venue, and is hired through the council. Equipment for your event can be hired from Yarra Ranges Athletics club. If you only need gates opened for your event, a reduced hire fee covers reimbursement for a volunteer to visit and unlock gates for your event.

Contact the Yarra Ranges Council to determine available dates. For booking call 1300 368 333 for Halls and Venues, or complete the online booking request

Contact Yarra Ranges Athletics regarding your equipment needs and other event management advice by e-mailing bookings@yarrarangesathletics.org.au or SMS to Michael on 0403 819 390

Training

Athletes of all ages and abilities will benefit from training.

Just like a team gets together to refine their skills and disciplines, so too can our athletes develop and improve with supervised training by our coaches.

Competition Days are busy and fast paced. It can be very difficult – no matter how hard we try – to provide truly effective coaching as events are being run. Athletes don’t get the benefit of repeated focus on their foundation skills and allowing improvement as they master each component of an event.

Our coaches continually work on developing their own skills and strive to ensure athletes are given programs that are both suitable for their age and abilities, while managing the volume of training and competition to avoid injury.

Attending training is another great way to develop friendships with other athletes and families from our club. Our camaraderie is one of our greatest strengths – don’t miss out!!

If you have any questions about the coaching that your athlete can receive contact our coaches by e-mail via coaching@yarrarangesathletics.org.au or follow the link here  for schedules and contact numbers:

AV Squad

The Athletics Victoria Development Squad provides a program for young athletes with a passion for athletics. The primary goal of the squad is to support enthusiastic athletes from under 14 to under 19, as well as their coaches and parents, by extending their knowledge and experience in the sport of athletics. The program provides training, competition, coaching and professional support, as well as the opportunity to meet athletes and other coaches from across the state. Most importantly, the aim is to encourage everyone to enjoy their athletic experience.
