We have some terrific news. After many months, our track will be open this week.
Firstly, all members are expected to read, be familiar with and prepared to abide by the attached Return to Athletics guidelines before commencing training at the VU Athletics Track. If you plan to use the track, please take the time to read them. If you have any queries or concerns, please don’t hesitate to ask a member of the Committee. A copy of the guidelines can be downloaded from the following link - http://westernathletics.com.au/images/2020/Guidelines_-_return_to_athletics_Nov_2020.pdf.
Secondly, as part of the CoVid safe plan, athletes and coaches have to check in on an attendance register. We are going with an online register, using Google Forms (see process below). Coaches are limited to 10 athletes for any one timeslot, so to avoid disappointment, please communicate with your coach to check that there is a place available.
I have attached a CoVid 19 VU Training Timetable for you to see when the timeslots have been allocated. Remember that three clubs use the track and we are limited to 4 groups of 10 on the track in any one timeslot. The Committee would appreciate your understanding that we cannot all attend training on a Tuesday and Thursday night from 5:00pm to 6:15pm as we have traditionally done. As restrictions ease we hope that we will be granted permission to increase group sizes.
Athletes will be able to check in on a device and / or coaches can submit a form on behalf of any of their athletes that do not have a device.
