LA Vic have provided the following update following the State Government Announcement that to re-impose stage 3 COVID-19 restrictions on all local government areas within metropolitan Melbourne and Mitchell Shire. The restrictions take effect from midnight 8th July and will remain in place for a period of 6 weeks.
Regrettably, community sport will be banned for impacted communities. This means athletes residing in the locked down areas will not be able to participate in Little Athletics activities during this time, and Centres located in locked down areas will not be authorised to conduct Little Athletics activities.
While this is extremely disappointing news for Little Athletics and thousands of our athletes in the short term, it is a reminder that our community faces a formidable, highly virulent and invisible foe and that there is much work that we must all do in order to defeat it in the months and years ahead.
That means that all training activities for little aths will cease for the 6 week period.
Little Aths Vic have previously advised that the State Track and Field and State Cross Country have already been cancelled.
Knox LAC will provide further updates as information is provided from LA Vic.
Please note that the Knox LAC AGM will move to an online only meeting. Knox LAC will provide further details and is still going ahead on 27 July 2020 at 7.30pm
