Little Athletics is run by volunteers and would not be able to run without the help of all parents.
Availability of families may change from week-to-week, so the dates you are rostered on my also change.
For Wantirna, each family is expected to do ‘Duty’ at least once every three to four weeks. This may vary depending on the number of families at our club. Families are given an opportunity to select their preferred dates at the start of the season. A duty roster is prepared and provided to families to ensure they know when they are rostered on.
When you are on duty, you choose one event and stay on that one event for the meet (that day). Duty may include marshalling of athletes, recording and distributing athlete performance information, re-setting event equipment.
Our club is also responsible for a number of events – where the club supplies volunteer ‘Chief Officials’ to run the event on the day. For information about events, see ‘How to help at little aths‘. If anyone is willing to be a ‘Chief’ Official’ please contact us
When on duty, please ensure you arrive early and sign-in by 8:15am on Saturdays, 6:45pm at Friday twilight meets and 2:45pm at Sunday twilight meets with the Duty Officer near the canteen.
Please note: Points and PBs for achievement may not be awarded to an athlete where their family does not attend duty.
