The Track and Field season commences with the annual Inter-house Carnival held on Ekka Thursday each year. From this carnival, we identify the College’s top athletes to join Villanova’s track and field squad.

Members of the squad train twice a week at the Vilanova Park where our newly built Track & Field facility is located. Training usually commences mid-Term 3 on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons after school, beginning in the middle of Term 3. Training, along with organised AIC Track & Field meets continue until the running of the AIC Track and Field Championships.

A dedicated group of coaches, consisting of College staff, Old Boys and professional external coaches, ensure our athletes are well prepared for the two-day AIC Track and Field Championships usually held early Term 4.

During the season, additional information such as training times, team lists, staff, schedules and results is available on the College website.
