Extreme Heat

As a centre we follow the policies and guidelines of LA Vic. Competition WILL go ahead until the temperature reaches 38 or the executive committee deem the conditions unsafe or unsuitable to run.

Please ensure that your children have sunscreen on, a wide brimmed hat to wear in between events and plenty of water throughout the morning on warm days.

Your responsibilities

As a parent can choose to keep your child/ren home and they are not obliged to compete if you feel the conditions may be unsuitable for your child. Only you are able to determine what is best for your child.

Program Delays or cancellation

Should a program need to be cancelled, the executive committee will review options to re-schedule that program. This may not be possible due to association commitments and availability of volunteers.

This season should a program be cancelled, the following week will continue in sequential order to the scheduled program and the cancelled program will be missed unless it is able to be rescheduled.
