Tots
Registered Tots will meet at the fitness equipment on the hall side of the oval. Tots are a non-competitive
group. The emphasis is on skill development. They will start at 5:15pm and finish at approximately 6:15pm
depending on the activities undertaken.
A parent/guardian must be present for the whole session.

 

Safety
• It is in the LANSW Rules that a parent/guardian is present at the venue at all times.
• The only people allowed onto the field of play are Age Managers (identified by red vests), Starters,
Committee Members (yellow shirts) and athletes in uniform.
• All other spectators must remain outside the track (behind fenced area) at all times.
• Age Managers should never walk their age group across the field when moving events. You must walk
around the outside as there are throwing events being conducted.

 

Age Managers, Starters, Recorders and Helpers
Athletics has multi events and all age groups on the field of play so help is required for competition night
to take place.
Age managers – each age group requires a minimum of 4 and a maximum of 6 age managers. Age
Managers sign on at the table near the equipment shed and collect a red Coles vest and age group
folder. At the end of the night the vests are returned to a separate container to be washed ready for the
following week.

At the end of the night, the last age group at an event area (Shot Put/Discus, Long Jump, High Jump
mats) are asked to pack up the equipment and return the trolleys to the equipment shed. The hurdles
trolley and starting blocks also need volunteers to return them to the equipment shed.

Starters – two are required each night. Starters sign on and collect a vest at the table.
Recorders – To assist in recording participants race times and field event results.
Helpers – The Club needs help in putting out the equipment and setting up the field each week before
competition can start.

Any help would be greatly appreciated, so please see a Committee member if you can help or are interested in helping, but not sure where to start.
