Starting time: Athletes are requested to be at Llanberris Athletics Track at 8:30am Saturday mornings for warm up followed by important announcements with competition commencing at 8:45am.
Athlete Supervision: Athletes MUST be supervised at ALL times. If it is not possible for you to be in attendance with your little athlete, you are required to arrange for another adult to be responsible for your athlete and let the age group Team Manager know.
Please do not drop off your child without making prior arrangements for their care as this will result in your child being excluded from competition until an adult responsible for the care returns. BLAC will not be responsible for little athletes left at the track during the competition meet, after the meet has concluded or training.
Parent Responsibility: Parent participation is essential in the running of all little athletics. Please remember that when you, the parent agree to your little athlete taking part at BLAC, you are indicating that you will help act as an official or other volunteer role. You will be rostered to help with our fundraising BBQ, set-up, pack-up, starters marshal, finish line marshal throughout the season.
The other roles you may like to volunteer for each week are:
COVID Safe Protocols: The 2020-21 season will look and feel different to other seasons due to COVID-19 and the safety protocols needed to keep our athletics community safe. Please know that the committee, especially our COVID Safe Officers (CSOs) are implementing measures to ensure the safety of all our little athletes, committee and families during this unprecedented time.
There will be changes to the way we run our competition, additional duty requirements, and unfortunately no spectactors unless supervising children.
More information will be provided here once the final details have been organised. Should you require further information, please ask our CSOs; Matt Jenkins or Ben Gallagher.
Adverse Weather: Cancellation of weekly competition programs can occur throughout the season due to extreme wet weather or heat conditions. On a Saturday morning, if you think that the program may be cancelled, check the Ballarat Little Athletics Facebook page, TeamApp or here on the website after 7:30am or after 4:00pm for a twilight meet.
The decision to cancel a program is not taken lightly and is made in accordance with our Extreme Weather Policy by the centre committee with the safety of athletes and officials as their prime concern.
A friendly reminder that NO DOGS ARE ALLOWED AT LLAMBERRIS
