Parents are very involved…

The commitment by a Parent at Little Athletics is one of involvement. Nothing more but nothing less.

PARENT CONTRIBUTION: Please be aware that every at site every official that you see at Hamersley is ONE of YOU. A parent VOLUNTEER.

The whole event on any Saturday ONLY runs on your help.  You must come prepared to contribute to your children’s age group.  It is impossible to hold this event each week if parents do not continue to assist at all of the sites.  Please do volunteer; please come to Hamersley Athletics prepared to contribute.

Thank you in advance for making time available to help out at your club and centre.  Without the enthusiastic help of all parents, Little Athletics as a family activity would not exist – a great club is formed from a great team of volunteers!  Please offer your help at training sessions and competition days wherever possible – you are sure to enjoy the experience.

Jobs you could be expected to do:

Help at the site where your kids are participating; high jump, long jump, javelin, etc.  You could retrieve a javelin, or call out the name of the next kid who is competing, record the length of a jump… measure with a tape measure…

Let’s face it, nothing I have mentioned so far is difficult… It is not Rocket science… just helping…

A key official at one of the sites is required if records are to be accepted… to do an on-line assessment (see the officials courses)…. .. How easy is that?

Our Key officials ARE parents like you.  They have kids that are competing just like yours and they want to spend time helping at the sites where there kids are participating.

Come along, volunteer to help run the Athletics AND feel free to bring the kids along to participate… but get the order right…

It is a commitment… your kids will love you being there and really appreciate you doing your bit to make it run smoothly…
