Weekly Newsletter – October 20

Nearly here

The Summer of Athletics is nearly here…

In just a few short weeks Yarra Ranges Athletics will be back up and running! We are so excited to get everyone back at the track, and look forward to getting to run, jump and throw at Morrison Reserve.

In line with Aths Vic and Little Athletics sanctions, we may only begin training once we have confirmation of the Restricted Activities Directions (RADs) that come out on Friday morning. Once these have been ratified by LAV and AV, and we can be certain that we can comply fully with these we can begin athletics training.

Make sure to register for LAV or AV so that you are ready to go as soon as the season begins!

Covid safety restrictions

The following is quoted directly from Little Athletics Victoria.

“The vaccination status of our volunteers – parents/guardians, officials, coaches, committee members, associate members, honorary members and others necessary to conduct our sport is not required to be checked or recorded if they are attending for Little Athletics activities.

Parents/guardians and all volunteers – vaccinated and unvaccinated – can attend Little Athletics activities without having to confirm their vaccination status.”

AVSL starts November 13

AVSL season launch

The Victorian Government recently announced its roadmap to deliver the National COVID Plan, setting out the path to opening.

Based on this Roadmap, Athletics Victoria 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.

In the coming weeks, we expect government advice on guidelines regarding vaccinated access to venues for competition and community sport. If you have yet to be vaccinated, click here to book your vaccine appointment. It is still essential that we all monitor for symptoms, get tested if feeling unwell, and get vaccinated when eligible.

We look forward to sharing more information very soon and seeing you back at events in November.
