CHANGES FOR CROSS COUNTRY RELAYS
Due to a change in AV membership structuring, cross country team relays now incur a club fee of $15pp for each entered member. For the previous 2 years Williamstown Athletics Club has absorbed this cost. This however, has an impact on the club and now consumes 30% of our revenue. To minimise this impact on the club the committee has agreed to a charge of $10pp for the remaining team relay events of the 2017-18 season.

For further information and payment methods please view here.
