Cross Country Round 1
The first round of the 2022 Cross Country season commences on Saturday 7th of May at Jells Park.
AV have released the provisional timetable and gradings which can be found here: https://athsvic.org.au/xcr_2022/
Provisionally, our Open Women will compete in Division 3 this season while our Open Men will have two teams, one in Premier Division and the other in Division 5. Underage/Masters teams are not graded and will compete in their respective age groups.
If you would like further information about the Cross Country season, want to express your interest in competing, or are interested in becoming an age group team manager, please contact our winter coordinator, Matt Christy (firstname.lastname@example.org).
If you require new uniform for the season, please contact our uniform coordinator, Alessia Wynne (0473359747)
We would also like to update you on the track upgrade.
We are pleased to report that the new rubberised surface has been laid on the track and we will now be waiting several weeks for the surface to set and the line marking to take place. Council have also used the works as an opportunity to undertake drainage improvement works on the infield and around the track facility.
At this stage, we remain on target for the track to be open sometime in May. However, no exact date has been provided by the contractors.
Once a date has been set, we will communicate this to our members.
