Our season is scheduled to start on Saturday 2nd October. Please see attached calendar for the season dates.
This season things will be run differently regarding our parent assistance. The new system is how athletic competitions are run at most clubs, region, state, national, and international levels. The intention is for this system to engage more parents and get them more involved in their athlete’s sport, while enlightening everyone to the fact that all tasks are quite simple. It is not the Olympics!
As many of you are aware, most weeks we have a select few parents/guardians multi-tasking to fill all duties. A lanyard system will be introduced. All parents will collect a lanyard on entry at the Covid check-in tent. The lanyard will have a duty description and a QR code to scan to record their contribution. Competition will not begin until there are enough assistants on the arena for events to run. The online roster will be available for those that would like to reserve their duty, but this will only be available on a week-by-week basis.
Each group will have one group leader who will record the results as in the past. Other roles will be fixed for the duration of the morning, for example, Long Jump Pit Raker/Shotput Spiker/High Jump Assistant. We have groups of athletes whose parents act as event officials/starters/timers every week, and in those instances, no parents are available to take the group. The new system should solve this issue, as well as easing the load on the select few who continually perform multiple duties in one morning.
