ATHLETICS

The Athletics season commences on Monday 19 August 2013. The four weeks athletics season is a very short one. It is hoped that all athletes attend as many training sessions as possible.

Throughout the 1990s and into the 2000s the team has experienced considerable success because it has been supported by the students of Scotch College. School spirit is created by the commitment and endeavours of its students. In 2011 we won the Alcock Shield by 10 points and repeated the winning performance in 2012. There is enormous athletic talent again this year. However, success will only come with sacrifice, commitment and hard work. The last time Scotch College won three consecutive Alcock Shields for Athletics was in the mid-1960's. This is the goal.

I appreciate that the athletics season falls at a demanding time for our students; with end of year examinations approaching, finals for community sport and development squads. However, if boys are organised with their time and committed to their School they will make it a priority to train with the athletics team. The physical and mental benefits of boys doing athletics are enormous and flow on into any sports they may play.

To accommodate the demands of time on our athletes, there are a large number of trainings available. Please attempt to make at least three training sessions per week.
