About the club



1 April 2019 - 31 March 2020

Bound by rules
Every person registering with Athletics Victoria as a member or prospective member of Athletics Waverley will be subject, as a member, to the constitution, bylaws and policies of the club. These are either published on the website or available to members on request:

Member obligations to help out
As the Club is run by members for members it is necessary that each member (either personally or by someone on their behalf) help out at least once a year at either one of the Athletics Victoria events for which we are required to provide helpers, or at our major fundraiser in December (providing support for the Northcote Gift held at the club's track). If you have a preference please let the club registrar know by email:
Members will be notified by the Club of the duty roster.

Fees are comprised of an Athletics Victoria component and a club component. The Athletics Victoria component comprises a base registration fee (compulsory) and then various options depending on which events athletes wish to compete in.
A winter package provides entry to all winter events. A summer package provides entry to all summer shield events. Athletes can purchase a package that covers both summer and winter, or just winter or just summer. Athletes running in only a few winter races may choose to enter those races separately rather than purchase a winter package.

Method of registering and paying
All registration and payments are made (from 1 April 2019) via Athletics Victoria will forward the club fee component on to the club.
