Come join the very successful KLAC relay program!
Under the capable leadership of our relay coaches Tim Golder, Nick Olsen and John McCall, the KLAC relay program has gone from strength to strength. KLAC is proud to announce the return of this program for the 2014/15 season.
Key competiton dates this year are:
– Box Hill Relay Day (for U8 to U16) – Sunday, 26 October
– Regional Relays (for U7 up to U16) – Saturday, 22 November
– State Relay Championships (for U9 up to U16) – Saturday, 13 December
In addition, teams will participate in two Relay Record Challenges during a normal KLAC Saturday morning competition. At this stage the likely dates for those Relay Challenges are Saturday, 15 November and Saturday, 29 November.
We are keen to field as many teams as possible, and to have as many children join the relay squad to be part of Team Keilor. All athletes are encouraged to join a relay team, regardless of natural running speed and previous experience. Come along and have a go!
The relay season is short and sharp, so the commitment to training is manageable. Training for each age group will only be for one 45 minute session each week, on the following days:
Under 7 and 8 – Mondays at 5.15pm, starting on Monday, 29 September and ending on Monday, 17 November
Under 9 and 10 – Wednesdays at 5.15pm, starting on Wednesday, 1 October and ending on Wednesday, 10 December
Under 11, 13 and 15 – Tuesdays at 6.00pm, starting on Tuesday, 7 October and ending on Tuesday, 9 December
Under 12, 14 and 16 – Wednesdays at 6.00pm, starting on Wednesday, 8 October and ending on Monday, 10 December
