WEEK 3 - Saturday 1st October
NB - This season, our Saturday morning competition will commence at Barton Park, Gladstone St, North Parramatta. See here for details.
Athletes should meet their Age Manager at their first event.
We need help each week to set up. Parents are rostered to arrive early on 4-5 mornings through the season. Please come down before 7:25am to get your name marked off our list.
Each week we need a parent volunteer to help in the canteen from 10:00am - 12:00pm.

Please note that both our Uniform Officer and Registrar are also Age Managers and will have other duties to fulfil from 8:00am. We thank you for your understanding.
Should it be raining either on Saturday morning or in the days leading up to competition, the Committee will assess the field and competition conditions. We will either run a Wet Weather amended program or, if the weather is too bad, we may cancel competition for the day.
If the decision is made to cancel, this information will be posted on both the Facebook and Instagram pages by 7:30am. So, keep an eye on these pages. If no announcement is made, then assume we are on!
CANTEEN, BBQ AND COFFEE VAN
The Coffee Van will again be present for that lovely morning hot beverage.
Unfortunately, there will be no BBQ this Saturday; however, the canteen will be open for cold drinks and yummy snacks!
WE NEED YOUR HELP
DATA ENTRY HELPERS
Are you handy on a computer? We are looking for some volunteers to help with data entry on Saturday mornings. If you are able to help, please email email@example.com or see one of the committee members (in the blue shirts) on Saturday morning.
Please remember that Little Athletics is run by volunteers and we need your help every Saturday to make it work & deliver a quality program.
Each Age Manager requires the help of four parents to assist with the running of an age group. This involves raking the sand, retrieving the shot/discus in throws and assisting to marshal athletes at the finish line following running events both sprints and long distance. All these jobs are simple to do but are a huge help, making the morning run smoother and reducing the delay between events.
If you see ANYTHING - on or off the field - that you can help with, please jump in and help. It will be greatly appreciated.
Please give your time generously to help with set up, pack up, timing and canteen shifts and helping out your age manager. Every little bit helps.
