Volunteering

Volunteers are essential in the running of our program.  Because Sandringham Little Aths is a totally voluntary organization, we cannot operate without the assistance of parents each week in fulfilling the many and varied duties required, including staffing the canteen, measuring long jumps, recording throws, to name a few.

Age Group Managers

Sandringham Little Athletics is fortunate to have a number of parents willing to give of their time as Age Group Managers for the season.  The AGMs are the most important people in Sandringham Little Aths, as they are critical to the successful running of our program each weekend.  AGMs are primarily responsible for leading a specific age group around the track for each of their events.  AGMs are also responsible for engaging with parents to help with field events through measuring, recording and co-ordinating.

AGMs typically have a child in the age group, so it is a great way of getting involved with their children’s sport.

All AGMs must have a valid Working With Children Check for the duration of the season.

If you are interested in being an AGM, please contact Sandringham Little Aths at [email protected].

Parent Duty

Each family (irrespective of how many athletes from your family compete) is required to perform Parent Duty role during the season (except AGMs).

Sandringham Little Aths uses an on-line portal (signup.com) where families can select the date, time and role for their Parent Duty.

Due to COVID restrictions, we have additional roles that require filling each week.  In order to comply with government regulations for return-to-play, our age groups will be split into groups of 10 athletes.  Each group requires 4 parents in support, as Group Leader, Equipment Volunteer (x2) and Hygiene Volunteer.  Without these 4 volunteers, the group of 10 cannot participate on the track.
