Winter Athletic Information 2019

 

 2019 Winter Competition

 

Athletes aged U7 – U17 (cross country), U9-U17 (road walk) can compete in these events.

Nominations for 2019 Winter Cross Country & Roadwalking have just opened. Athletes who were registered for 2018/19 summer season are free to compete in the winter season.

Existing members just need to log into their ResultsHQ profile to nominate for the winter season.

Still have you timing chip? If you still have your timing chip from last season, you can reuse it. When you nominate, select the “BYO Tag” option.

Lost your timing chip from last year? Timing chips are $5- and can be paid for online when you nominate.

New athletes (not previously registered for the 2018/19 season)

Please go to www.resultshq.com.au and create a profile. The LAWA fee for new registrations is $100 (includes the timing chip). The fees may be paid online.

Please note – New registrations and/or winter nominations will not be allowed on the day of competition.  Any new registrations must have been completed by the athlete no later than the Thursday evening before the first week they wish to compete.

More on Timing chips (RFIDs)

Each athlete must have a RFID chip to be worn on their shoe or ankle during their race. This is to streamline timing and finish line procedures. Chips can easily be attached to the athlete’s shoe lace or alternatively on a piece of elastic or a strap around the ankle. Each chip has a unique number which is recorded against the athlete’s name and is not transferable. Only chips issued by LAWA for the Winter competition can be used.   LAWA staff / officials will not be able to replace lost chips on the day of competition. The Southern Districts Winter Officer can allocate a replacement chip however this has to be done on the Thursday evening before the week they wish to compete.

New and replacement timing chips/age tags/SD shirts will be available to pick up from Graham (Winter Officer) on the 29th April at Shelley or 2 May at Piney Lakes. Piney Lakes Reserve Winthrop (Carpark off Murdoch Drive) – 5-6 pm only.

Uniforms

Under 7’s to 9’s may wear their club uniform.  Under 10’s to 17’s must be in Centre uniform. Age tags, registration numbers and logos must be worn as per the summer season. Again SDLAC singlets will be available for purchase fromGraham for $35.

A hot twilight and 2 broken records!

 

Hi everyone,

 

Well our last competition before Championships was a hot one!  Later on the night it became quite a pleasant twilight weather wise though which was a relief.

Next weekend we will have our Centre Championships which will take place over the Saturday and the Sunday.  Weather forecast is for  a balmy 27/28 degrees, we’ll take it!!

 

2 RECORDS BROKEN

On Saturday night, not only was the heat around us but on the track too! Tori Moss broke another record..U16, 300m Hurdles in a snap 45.90 sec. The old record was 47.79 sec. That girl just doesn’t stop! Awesome Tori! Just wondering is there a record for how many records you can break in one season…she’s gotta be sooo close! Proud of you Tori!

Blake Pritchard is going out with a bang too!! On Saturday night, he Blake Pritchard broke the record in the U17M 300m hurdles running it in 39.69sec. The old record was 40.73. What a way to finish a season….with a broken record.. i think the skirt was removed for that one and the serious hat went on. Super proud of you Blake, super guy on and off the track…well done!

 

AGE GROUPS OF THE WEEK

Here they are, our two Age Groups of the Week, U8 girls and U8 boys…. fair to say that our U8 boys could be our most energetic and active out on the track!

 

 

U17 LAST COMP DAY

Our U17 girls and boys had a great last comp day dressing up in their tutus.  Unfortunately last Saturday we didn’t see the parade but rest assure it will take place next weekend!

They look gorgeous!

 

 

 

 

Don’t forget to RSVP for the Windup on Saturday 16 March, events@sdlac.org.au

Enjoy your week,
