Cross Country

Athletics is a broad term that encompasses Cross Country and Track & Field.

The aim of our Athletics program is to give all students an opportunity to learn, develop and advance their skills through Cross Country and/or Track & Field, whilst working with experienced and knowledgeable coaches.

During Term 2 there will be a Cross Country focus, where girls will learn the technical aspect of distance running, along with how to pace themselves during a race. Girls are encouraged to attend at least two running sessions each week and a conditioning session. Girls are encouraged to attend Girls Sport Victoria PB meets on Tuesday afternoons, where Lauriston’s GSV team will be selected to compete at the Preliminary and Championship events.
