State Relay Championships 2019-20

The State Relay Championships for season 2019-20 are on this Saturday 14th December at Casey Fields, Cranbourne.

Congratulations to the 35 Mentone teams who have made it through to the State Championships.

DUTY ROSTER

Parents of participating athletes please check the Duty Roster and ensure you report to the Mentone tent 15 mins before your duty. As always these events can't be held without lots of parental assistance and we appreciate everyone doing their part on the day. Please be mindful of the following:

  • Closed-shoes are required when on duty - no thongs/sandals.
  • Please don't use your phones or take pictures whilst on duty.
  • Please check-in at the Mentone tent 15 mins before your duty - don't go straight to your duty.

TIMETABLE

Check the Mentone Teams Timetable by Age Group as it shows the call room closing time (most important), event time, heat & lane number and the total number of entries in an event.The event final time is also listed for events with heats & finals.  This is for reference if a team makes a final. There is also a full Mentone Teams Timetable which shows all the Mentone teams by event order.

Note: The Call Room opens 30 mins before event time, and CLOSES 20 mins before event time.  All athletes in a team should present to the call room at heat time in case the heat becomes a straight final.
