Good luck to our 100 athletes competing at the Zone Championships this weekend.


Zone Start lists and Updated Volunteer Roster

Further to this morning’s email we can now provide the 2022 Zone Program with start lists.

We have also updated the Volunteer Roster.

Please note:

  • We have done the best we can with the volunteering roster and where possible we have tried hard to accommodate your requests, but this was not always possible.
  • Every family is expected to turn up and complete their volunteering shift.
  • Each family has been assigned 1 or 2 shifts (for 2 or more kids) at times your kids will be competing.
  • If you can’t do your shift, contact other parents and arrange a swap and let us know the change please.
  • If you cannot find a swap or can’t do your shift for unforeseen circumstances, please contact Matt Davoren 0409154237 or Theresa Novak on 0425278787


Good Luck

Update for 22 January 2022

Ladies & Gentlemen,


Thanks to all those who helped last weekend. We are at McKay again this Saturday. Let’s hope the rains stays away.


Hot Dog Stand – U9 parents are on Stand/Canteen duty.


This week on the Track

We are on program 4 this weekend.

Set-up is from 7.30am. Please make sure that as many parents as possible lend a hand to set-up.

Sean will run the walks/3k at 7.30am.


We will not be having graded races this week but will be running events by age group or combined age groups.


The Inner City Zone competition is on next weekend Saturday, 29 and Sunday 30 January at The Crest, Bankstown.

There will be no normal competition at McKay oval on Saturday 29 January. 

This year the club has 100 athletes competing in 408 events. This is an outstanding effort given all the challenges which we have faced this season. 


It is extremely important that the correct uniform is worn at Zone, so please make sure your registration number is attached on the front, the correct age patch is attached either on the left shoulder or left short leg and the Coles patch is attached either above or below the SELAC logo.  Brendon (our Registrar) should have supplies at the Oval tomorrow.


The final program will be available shortly, and will be posted on the website. 

The parent volunteering roster is almost complete and will be sent out shortly. 

COVID Guidelines


It is still important that we run a safe program and ensure that we remain Covid free for all those athletes and parents attending. If you have any symptoms, then please remain at home. If you are at all concerned, then please (where possible) use a RAT before coming.


Wet weather cancellation announcements will be communicated via the Facebook page and as the scrolling message on the website. (Usually after 7:30am so we can observe actual conditions).
