New Season


By November 8, 2020 No Comments

After a long wait our 2020/21 season will start this Saturday the 14th of November when we will host our Welcome Day. The Welcome Day will give athletes, parents and officials an opportunity to experience how this season will look and feel a little different to previous seasons as we adhere to the required Covid safety protocols established by the State Government, LA Vic and the City of Yarra.

The Welcome Day will include the presentation of trophies for last season, the opportunity to collect your 2020/21 registration tags, purchase CLAC singlets/ water bottles and receive information on how this season will be conducted. The athletes will also get the opportunity to compete in some events to ease themselves into the new season.


Due to the restrictions on the number of people allowed at the track at one time, we will have two Welcome Day sessions broken down by age group:

Session 1: 8.30am – 10.00am for Under 6 –  10 athletes (based on their age group for this season)

Session 2: 10.00am – 11.30am for Under 11 – 16 athletes

You will need to register your attendance, via Team App, for the appropriate session so as we know what numbers to expect and can plan accordingly. Instructions on how to do this are provided in the attached flyers. A TeamApp event will be created tomorrow (Monday) for you to RSVP.

When you arrive at the track for your session the parent/ guardian will need to provide their contact details (name, email & mobile number) for attendance tracking purposes. This will be completed via scanning the CLAC QR code, at the entry gate, onto your phone.

There will be a number of CLAC committee members at the gate to assist you through this process so there is no need to worry. It is actually a very simple process.

Once inside the gate the athlete will be directed to the appropriate area and I will conduct information sessions outside the clubrooms for the parents.

Please note, the entry gate to the track will be closed 15 minutes after the scheduled session start time so please make sure you arrive on time.

If your family has one child in the Under 6 – 10 age group and another child in the Under 11 – 16 age group then you can register to come to the same session. These age groupings will only apply for the Welcome Day due to the trophy presentation for last season.

I look forward to seeing and speaking to all of you this Saturday so as we can make the 2020/21 season a positive and enjoyable experience for everyone. I also encourage as many of you as possible to register for the season before next Saturday so as we can have your registration tag ready for you to collect at the Welcome Day.
