Do parents have to volunteer?
Yes, because Little Athletics is a totally voluntary organisation, we cannot operate without the assistance of parents each week in fulfilling the many and varied duties required. We will email a request for volunteers each month so that you can sign up in advance. Otherwise see the volunteer coordinator out the front of the clubrooms when you arrive and sign up as an Age Group Coordinator or to assist with an event.
A parent from each family must volunteer on Team App & complete event duties at a minimum of 3 weekly CLAC competitions throughout the season. Failure to comply may result in your child / children being unable to participate in future CLAC events, until such time that your volunteering obligations are performed or alternatively you can opt to pay a $100 fee to cover the cost to CLAC of hiring sufficient officials to enable us to run our weekly events/ competitions.
I don’t know anything about athletics so how can I help?
Volunteering is the best way to learn. Each event will have a fully qualified lead official who can provide instruction and support. You can also volunteer to assist with the timing events, setting up and packing up.
Each competition is more likely to start on time and finish on time if there are enough volunteers.
