Monash Sport – University Closedown Period
Just a reminder that in line with the University policy for closure of other facilities and services on campus, all Monash Sport facilities and services will be closed from Saturday 22 December, 2012 to Wednesday 2 January, 2013 (inclusive), reopening Thursday 3 January, 2012. This is consistent with the University policies, and the Monash Sport membership terms and conditions.
This will result in the explicit closure of all gymnasium access, group fitness classes, court hire, outdoor oval hire and swimming pool access during this period. This time frame also represents the best window to undertake many essential maintenance and refurbishment works, whilst minimising disruption to students and staff on campus.
Swimming through Summer
Do your kids know how to swim? Do they know where and how to swim in the surf, and do you?
With so much of the Australian population living on the coast, surf safety should be first and foremost in our minds.However, of the 284 drowning deaths in Australia over the last year, 19% of them were at the beach. In fact beach drownings were second only to drowning deaths in inland waterways.
A lot of the summer water safety messages emphasise small children and swimming pools, but everyone is potentially vulnerable.
It’s never too late to learn how to swim or improve your swimming ability. Our Adult Learn to Swim Program is dedicated to teaching people of every age the fundamentals of swimming and water safety. We offer a variety of swimming programs specifically designed for adults. Our experienced and patient swimming instructors take care in planning lessons that are fun and challenging for all participants.
Summer exercise tips
Summer is the perfect time to go outside and have fun. There are so many outdoor activities, events and programs to choose from around Melbourne – especially at the beach! Everything is more fun outside, whether you’re swimming, running or cycling. But the summer heat can be a problem if you’re not careful, particularly in areas with extreme heat and humidity.
You may not be exercising in the desert, but we do live in Melbourne, where scorching heat isn’t too uncommon. Here are some things to keep in mind when it comes to exercising in the heat:
- The time of day is important. Unless you are training for an event that takes place in the daytime heat, avoid exercising from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. It’s the hottest part of day. Generally, the early morning is the best time to workout, especially if it’s going to be scorcher that day.
- Wear loose, light-coloured clothing. The lighter color will help reflect heat, and cotton material will help the evaporation of sweat. You may also want to try specially designed, “hi-tech” running shirts and shorts. They are often made from material meant to keep you cool.
- Sunscreen is a must. Aim for at least SPF 30+ just to be safe. It’s important to protect your skin. You can get burned and suffer sun damage to your skin even on cloudy days. This also dehydrates you.
- Stay hydrated. Before you go out, drink a glass or two of water. Carry a bottle of water or even a hydration pack such as the CamelBak. Take a drink every 15 minutes, even when you’re not thirsty. When you’re done with your workout, have a few more glasses of water.

Chancellor’s Cup Golf Day
The Chancellor’s Cup Golf Day is a fundraising opportunity for Monash University affiliated sporting clubs across all campuses. The four person Ambrose format will provide the basis for a great day of golf on one of Melbourne’s most prestigious courses at the Spring Valley Golf Club.
Throughout the day various competitions will be held including, longest drive and nearest the pin. And with the Baseball club winning the past two Chancellor’s Cup Golf Days, they will be sure to be going for a third, however there will be a few teams biting at their heels this year.
Although the competitive streak will come out throughout the course of the day, our fundraising efforts are the top priority. Last year over $8,500 was raised for Monash University sporting clubs, helping them stay financially viable and providing a great outlet for Monash University students and staff members.
A light lunch will be provided on arrival, with food and beverage snacks supplied to participants during the round from a mobile refreshment cart. The event will finish with an informal gourmet BBQ, presentations to the winners and a thank you to all participants for their support.
Held on Friday 16 November, at Spring Valley Golf Club (just 5 minutes from Clayton campus), the day promises to be great day out for all keen golfers at Monash.
Please visit our website for more information.
