Assisting your Age group Manager to keep the morning moving

Age group Managers are parent volunteers who have a list of guidelines and result sheets in their folder to assist them in conducting events. Please feel free to assist your age group manager wherever you can.  A copy of the guidelines is on our notice board outside the office window. A couple of helpful points not listed on the notice but you should be aware of;

  • Under 6 and Under 7 do NOT compete in lanes in the 200s (to save time). Under 8 athletes need to be reminded to stay in their lanes.
  • High Jump heights move up in 5cm increments until only 6 athletes remain in the competition. 2cm increments are then an option
  • Athletes are entitled to 3 jumps/throws in jumping and throwing events. If your child requires guidance or is unfamiliar with rules or techniques, please ask a BLAC member for assistance prior to or after the event.

  • All athletes are expected to participate sensibly in events so as not to distract or impede other athletes

 


 

Accessing your Results

Your username is your registered email address and your password will be your IMG (LAVic registration membership database) USERNAME where you register on-line).

Here's a few other result updates:

  • Not all results go up at the one time. Be aware of this if you check the resultshq site during the morning as some of the results may obviously not have been entered and will be missing at such a time.

  • The stars that show up on the on-line results/tickets are showing pbs and are not Bendigo star levels.

  • Any feedback or query is appreciated and can be forwarded to Bendigo@lavic.com.au.
