Covid 19 Protocols

Knox Little athletics Centre is committed to the health and safety of all our athletes, families, officials, coaches and our volunteers. As part of the return to community sport in Victoria, Knox LAC has implemented Covid 19 protocols in line with that issued by the Victorian Government and Little Athletics Victoria.

These will be implemented for all Knox LAC Sanctioned events and training sessions and it is expected that all participants will support and abide by these protocols. The protocols are important to understand and are in place so that Little Athletics can operate in a Covid environment.
