AV Shield Round 1: Important Information

With AV Shield set to kick off for season 2017/18 this Saturday, there are a few important things all competing Essendon athletes need to know:


If you’re new to the club and yet to purchase a uniform, you can pick on up from Jayne Pizzo at the Geelong venue or Arthur Whitchell at the Doncaster venue on Saturday for $40. Uniforms can also be purchased on Tuesday and Thursday evenings and Saturday and Sunday mornings at the Moonee Valley Athletics Centre.

Competition Bibs

If you have pre-entered, your bibs will be available at the venue you have nominated in your entry. If you are competing on the day, your bibs will be available from the Doncaster venue. If you are competing at a venue other than Doncaster as per the new “compete anywhere” rules for AV Shield, you will be issued temporary bibs at your competing venue and will have your competition bibs mailed out by the club during the week.
