Age Group Managers
Finishing the Tuesday afternoon competition at a reasonable hour depends on assistance from parents. We will have Age Group Managers for each age group and gender. This helps ensure events start on time and streamlines the operation of events. Training is provided and it is a great way to be involved with your child. If you are interested in being an Age Group Manager, please talk to one of our committee members.
While we have Age Group Managers, they still need helpers at events to mark and measure the throws or jumps, rake the long jump pit, and carry out some crowd control. Most assistants enjoy being part of their child’s activities and the children love to see Mum and Dad there supporting them.Each of our age groups needs an Age Group Manager and usually one or more regular assistants for the larger groups.
Assistance Recording Results
Recording the athlete’s results each competition day is an important task. Without this system we would not be able to calculate improvement points and determine end of season awards. We are seeking assistance from people to help recording the results each afternoon. If you have young children to supervise which makes helping out on the other activities difficult, then this is the job for you, as the kids can be beside you while recording. This job involves recording the times and distance that athletes achieve in the track & field events on the sheets in each Age Group Managers folder. McDonald’s Awards are awarded to particpants.
Being an Age Group Manager or Assistant can be a very rewarding role especially when you can watch each child grow throughout the season to improve their skills, techniques, lengths and times.
If you see your child's group is in need of help please offer to lend a hand. It's fun and a great way to get involved in your child's development. If you are unsure of what to do, just ask. We don't bite!!
