The club is run by a team of enthusiastic volunteers. There is always room for more help and your support would be welcome however much time you can commit to.
There are opportunities in many areas, all of which are worthwhile and ultimately contribute to the ongoing success of the club; working as a committee member (see the contact list for the various roles involved), coaching, team management, officiating at meetings, gate cover and ‘other’.
Gate cover involves standing at the track gate during the training sessions and recording the attendance by collecting in the track passes. ‘Other’ mainly covers all the jobs that need doing when we host a home match, e.g. setting up, announcing, registration, first aid, recording the results on a lap-top, providing refreshments for officials and moving hurdles and steeple chase barriers, etc.
Most of the roles can be picked up quickly with on-the-job instruction from an experienced club volunteer.
The more technical roles such as coach, starter, track judge, timekeeper or field judge require training courses which are offered by England Athletics. The club supports candidates for these courses. The course fees and traveling expenses are paid for by the club.
Please contact me if you would like to explore ways in which you could help the club.
I will be happy to discuss the many opportunities that are available.
