Schools Sport Victoria (News)

In Track and Field news, SSV is hosting another online/virtual event

At last term’s assembly we mention that you could participate in the 2021 Virtual Cross Country event. They are now hosting the 2021 Virtual Track and Field event. This event is for all Victorian primary and secondary students and I encourage all of you to take part in this fun opportunity. There are several ways you can be involved and it is important to remember, SSV are wanting all students to give it a try.

You can take access more information about this event by contacting Johnny Miller via Ashwood’s email mailbox, or you can access the event details via SSV’s website. 

SSV is not just looking for the best in our state. They are looking for your personal bests. The events you can participate in are as followed:

  • 60m, 100m, 200m and 400m sprint
  • 800m and 1500m run
  • Tennis ball shot put
  • 800m and 1500m walk
  • Standing long jump and standing triple jump

You can record your attempts in just one or all of these events and upload them to SSV’s Virtual Track and Field website. This is a new way in which to conduct an Athletics Carnival, but it is still a great opportunity to test yourself. As always, please encourage your family and friends to be involved and get active with you.
