Age Group Managers are required to have a working with vulnerable people card. We ask all age group manager to email a copy of their WWVP card to Ben, ideally prior to the start of the season. If you do not currently have a WWVP card, you can easily apply for one via this link: Working with vulnerable people (WWVP) registration (act.gov.au)

Age Group Managers FAQs
1. What does an Age Group Manager do?
If you are short of helpers on the day, we recommend you ask parents who may be spectating to help you - even if it is for a single event if parents are watching events they can be helping. If you regularly find yourself short of helpers, email our Age Group Manager Coordinator and we can encourage more parent helpers in our weekly newsletter.
2. What do I do if I can't make it on a Saturday?
If there are meets in the calendar which you are aware that you can't attend please speak with other parents and see if someone may be able to fill in for you. If you are not able to do this, please email us and we will seek a replacement on the morning of the meet.
Entering Field Event Results Using the Competition HQ App
We are encouraging all Age Group Managers to enter their age group's field event results using the Competition HQ app for our 2022/23 season. More information on using the Competition HQ app can be found via this link: Competition HQ download and training videos – Timing Solutions Support Forum
There are 3 options for entering field event results using the Competition hq app:
Using the Competition HQ app takes a lot of pressure off our Chief Recorder and allows athletes (and parents!) to see their results earlier.
If you are happy to enter your age group's results using the Competition hq app this season please let Simone and/or Ben know and they will then set you up as a "mobile user" so that you can use the Competition hq app. If you used the Competition hq app last season and are happy to continue, let us know if you need assistance with logging in again.
