Cancellation of Meets / Extreme Weather Policy

Cancellation of weekly competition programs can occur throughout the season due to wet weather or excessive heat conditions. The decision to cancel a program or training is not taken lightly and is made by the Centre executives with the safety of athletes and officials as their prime concern.

On a Saturday morning if you think the program maybe cancelled check the Traralgon Little Athletics Website or Facebook page after 8.00am or 4.30pm for Twilight program during the week.

Athletes should ensure they bring a water bottle and a drink fountain is located beside the canteen.

If lightning is evident the program will be halted immediately and the conditions will be assessed with the intention to continue program once the conditions clear.

Sharps (Syringes)

All persons are requested to immediately report any syringes sighted inside the competition venue so that they may be safely removed. Reports should be made to a member of the Centre Committee. Horizontal Jump officials should also be mindful that these objects might be buried in the jump pits.
