Parental participation is essential for Sale Little Athletics Centre to run successfully. No program of Little Athletics competition can be held without the help of parents to act as officials. Each week a minimum of 50 parents are needed to run the Track and Field program.
During the Cross Country season parents assist when Sale hosts an event. Assistance is also required for Region and State Track and Field and Cross Country events.A requirement of registration at Sale Little Athletics Centre is that parents/guardians agree to participate in a roster system to help out with one of the positions required to run the program each Saturday morning during the Track and Field season. A roster must be filled in at the time of registration or the registration will not be accepted. You do not have to have been an athlete yourself to be an official and most tasks do not require special knowledge. Anyone can help in some way.
Each family is rostered for duty approximately every three weeks. A parent or family member from that family is expected to attend on those days. A roster sheet is issued to you so you know of the dates in advance and can note them in your diary.
Training sessions are conducted by the committee during the season for parents to learn different aspects of being an Official and an opportunity to learn specialised roles such as becoming a Starter.
