The 2019/20 season is commencing and we need your commitment to our Volunteer Roster or your help as an Age Manager.
To run a full program efficiently on a Friday night, it takes many parent helpers. We understand that just like our athletes our parents come from a diverse range of backgrounds and as such have different talents and experiences. There is a place for everyone at Little Athletics and there are a number of ways you can become involved from Committee members and age managers to raking the long jump sand pit, measuring, timekeeping, starting, to helping out in the canteen. If you are not sure exactly what you are doing there is always someone there to help you out – all you have to do is ask, and throughout the 2019/20 season we are focusing on training our volunteers for the long-term benefit of our athletes and the club.
A parent or guardian must be present at the ground. Our insurance requirements mandate that parents/carers remain on the premises and our expectation is that you will be with your child’s age group if not otherwise performing a rostered duty. Any help you can provide your age manager or committee will be greatly appreciated.
At championship events, parents will also be expected to help out but there will be accredited officials to assist and guide you.
Parents who use their age managers as ‘baby sitters’ do not go unnoticed.
