The State Cross-Country Relay Championships is a Teams event, where 3 athletes complete a Relay over a Cross-Country course. The distances are less than the individual Cross-Country distances to allow greater flexibility and formation of Teams. Athletes do not carry a baton, they start and finish within a transition zone.

Events

U11 & U12: 3 x 1.5km
U13, U14, U15 & U16: 3 x 2km (2 laps of 1km)

Stawell Gift

Every year Little Athletics Victoria holds events at the Stawell Gift. This year Little Athletes could enter 100m, 400m, 800m and 1600m.
We had one athlete go up and enter all 4 events.
Congratulations to Declan Maling, who was one of the only athletes to run in all the events, and also make the final in each event!

State Championships Review

Whilst we celebrate medals, we are proud of all 68 athletes that qualified for the state championships this weekend. You have qualified in the top 24 athletes in the state – that itself is something to be proud of!

Every single athlete got out there and tried their best, that’s all we can ask for. A lot of PBs, A lot of smiles and best of all lots of cheering. Whilst some kids may be disappointed with their performances, our centre is proud of the way you all conducted yourself this weekend!

Nearly every event had another athlete cheering them on and wishing them good luck. The younger siblings that get dragged along were all on their best behaviour and got involved in the cheering.

Special Thanks to
– Adam and Dean for being there all weekend warming up our athletes
– Kelly and the coaching team for getting the kids ready in the lead-up
– Parents that did their duties, and especially the parents that covered for those that avoid doing their part

Ribbons for the Top 8 as well as performance cards will be handed out over the next few weeks and at Presentation Day.

Please note: as the email that was sent out earlier tonight, there has been a positive COVID case in the Cranbourne Team. If you are showing symptoms please get tested.

Thanks,
Paul Freestone & Andrew Pryn

Our annual Personal Best & Championship Day is here this Saturday!

Please Note: If athletes haven’t pre-registered for this event, they are illegible to compete this weekend!!

Parent Duty

Parent Duty for this event is completely different from a normal week! Parent duty is broken up by events and time blocks.
This week it is highly important that we fill ALL spots. If we cannot get enough helpers at an event or at the finish line etc, it will result in the day going a lot longer!

Presentation slips are to be completed and sent to the presentation area and the results sheets are to be placed in results entry basket inside the timekeeper’s room. Make sure age groups compete together eg don’t do 12 B then 12 G. But places awarded per age group.

If we don’t get enough helpers events WILL be cancelled!

If an event is a mixed age group and you have signed up, you must assist for the FULL-time block, not just one age group.

Parents are more than welcome to sign up for multiple time blocks, as long as they do not clash!

When registering you agreed to do a duty! Failure to do duty will result in your child being illegible for medals/trophies and possible scratchings from further events – including events for the 2022/23 season.

No Age group team Managers on the day and trolleys will be staying at the events please leave the folders in the trolleys.

CLICK HERE TO SIGN UP FOR PARENT DUTY

Marshalling Area

Children will be called to the marshalling area, marquees near the 100m start, and MUST have their names ticked off before going to an event.

Entering the Arena and Arena Rules

NO PARENT OR ATHLETE will be allowed to enter the arena without going through marshalling or being at an event for duty.

NO PARENT/SIBLING/ATHLETE is to run along side an athlete

NO PARENT is to be cheering on the inside of the track, this will result in children being disqualified – this is actually an official Little Athletics Australia Rule.

Presentation Area

For this special week medals and ribbons are given out for all events. We do require some helpers for this area throughout the day – you can sign up using the parent duty sign up.

Program of Events

CLICK HERE TO SEE THE PROGRAM OF EVENTS

The first event is from 8 am!!

Please remember this program has taken numerous hours to prepare and is set up this way to have minimal event clashes.

If your child does have event clashes, the marshalling assistant will be able to assist with this when marshalling – they will not miss an event.

If an area is free, you CANNOT just jump in and do your event – if this happens the event will be scratched from the program.
