No programme of Little Athletics competition can be held without the assistance of parents to act as officials. This year the club has been assigned to help at Triple Jump 2 and the Back Straight Gates for the season. We will be using a roster system which ensures we provide adequate officials without the same parents helping all the time. All parents must assistance when rostered, please see weekly newsletters for the roster. If you are unable to assist you must advise Val prior to competition day so we can change the roster.
NOTE all parents must help throughout the season, if you do not assist your childs points will be affected which will inturn affect their end of season results.
During wet weather, there is the possibility that competition will be cancelled for the day. If you are unsure if competition will proceed, please check this website for details as it will be updated (if possible) as soon as we become aware of this. Alternatively ring a member of the Executive Committee.
