Parent Assistance

Little Athletics can only run with the participation of parents. It is expected and indeed essential that parents and/or carers become involved in helping with the running of events. There is a requirement for each family to provide assistance during the season in order for their children to qualify for end of season awards at the Presentation. The level of assistance is not too onerous.

Duties include Age Marshalling, Timekeeping, Place Judging, Equipment Set Up, Equipment Pack Up, Canteen, BBQ etc. It is a requirement that each family will perform at least 5 duties during the course of the season. You can sign on for duties at each club meet by seeing one of the committee members near the canteen before the start of competition.

It is a requirement that all children be accompanied by an adult at the ground while they are competing. Parents are not to leave their children unattended at the park.

We intend to run some specific orientation sessions at the commencement of competition this year in order to assist parent is understanding specific events.

Please see also your “How to Help” booklet in the registration pack.

Parents/Carers are not to leave their children unattended at the park and then pick them up at the end of the night.

Children who are left on their own WILL NOT be allowed to compete. Be responsible for helping your child enjoy their involvement - Parent participation is a NECESSITY.


This year we will be rostering one Age Group every Friday night to provide helpers for the Canteen. The role of the assistants will not be too onerous. Keep an eye on the Canteen Roster page of this web site for further information as the season develops.
