Patches

Athlete tickets
All athletes are given a record of their participation at the end of each event. These tickets should be returned to our statisticians, located under the Rowville Lakes marquee by the end of each event. This enables accurate and up to date records to be kept on each athlete’s performance and provide the relevant medals and/or trophies. If tickets are not lodged by the following week points may not be allocated.

Illness/Injury
If an athlete is unable to attend, for a sustained period, due to illness/injury please inform the Team Manager. It may still be possible for the athlete to receive a participation award despite not completing the required 60% of competition; however eligibility will be determined on a case by case basis.
