With the Little Athletics season starting soon we are now seeking Age Group Managers to assist our athletes during their events on Saturday mornings. This is a simple role but vital for the running of our meets - no age group manager no events!
The Age Group Manager takes their group of athletes (for example, Under 8 Girls or Under 12 Boys) to each of their events, makes sure the athletes understand what the event involves and lines them up ready to go. For field events they, along with other parent helpers, record results (such as measuring long jump or throws). Each manager typically has 2-3 parent helpers each week.
With our online resultsHQ system we no longer write up results tickets for events, to the age manager's job is MUCH less time consuming than previously.
This role can be easily shared amongst parents, and we have a Committee Member to help - Louise Cruz is our Age Group Manager coordinator.
