Track & Field Training

Training for the GSV Track & Field Preliminaries is now in full swing. 

  • Training will usually be held after school on Mondays and Thursdays.  We meet at the bus at 3:30pm.  Training runs from 4:00pm – 5:30pm and then we bus back by 6:00pm.
  • It is hoped that girls will be able to attend both training sessions per week but I know there will be clashes with a range of other school and outside school activities.  Girls should try to get to as many sessions as they can.  There are only 7 more training sessions until the GSV Prelims on August 16th.
  • We are fortunate to have our same four coaches from last year:

Rupert Van Dongen           Track

Tony Dell                              Throws and High Jump

Clodagh Grogan                 Horizontal Jumps

Matthew Nolan                 Sprints

  • Training this term is at Lakeside Stadium.  The first few sessions next term are at Sandringham Athletics Track including some inter-school ‘PB’ meets in the first 3 weeks of Term 3.  After that all our training is at Lakeside Stadium.
  • For each training session it is important that girls advise Mr Zwar by email that they will be attending so that adequate transport can be organised. 
  • The school team will be selected based on performances at the House Track & Field, attendance and performances at Training Sessions and performances at the PB Meets.
  • For training girls must wear their school sports uniform.  Spikes will be available for loan at each session.  Girls should also bring a drink bottle.
  • Training will be cancelled in wet weather.  A cancellation will be posted on the Lauriston Team App.
