Volunteers

We rely on a small group of dedicated volunteers to coach, officiate and run all aspects of the club.

Administration: We currently have people looking after kit sales, membership and catering, but really need people to take on other administration roles, or participate in an informal ‘standing committee’ to run the club. We are also looking for someone to increase our online presence and communication.

Officials: All athletics competitions depend on a significant number of officials, from trained time keepers, to people prepared to rake sandpits. If clubs don’t provide sufficient officials, they are penalised points and their athletes suffer; equally if times are not recorded properly they will not count towards official PBs. We always need volunteers, and if you want to get more involved we can offer access to training.

Coaching: We can’t expand our membership without increasing our number of coaches. If you are interested in coaching we can offer access to courses and support from our existing dedicated team.

Team managment: It is really important that teams are organised, both before competitions, and on the day, to ensure that we have enough athletes, and that they are in the right place at the right time. We currently have a very good e mail system for inviting athletes to compete, but we are always looking for parents/ guardians to look after teams.

If you are interested in getting involved, please contact Ian (iandadswell@f2s.com).
