Help Us Grow Stronger
Officials are at the heart of each athletics event, measuring and recording the performances of each athlete while ensuring the rules of the competition are adhered to. Officiating is broken into specific disciplines with varying levels of qualification.
- Track Judge
- Field Judge
- Time Keeper
- Photo Finish
Not all officials at an athletics competition or event are technical in nature. We have a need for non-technical staff to support the running of the event. Types of non-technical roles include:
- Athlete Registration
- Warm Up/Call Room Support
- Car Park Attendant
These can be rewarding but do not require a specific understanding of event rules or carry a qualifications track.
Whether you want to lend a hand occasionally or if you have a passion to become a qualified expert coach in a specific discipline, we are always keen for new club coaches. As a starting point, coaches often start as unqualified volunteers assisting one of our qualified coaches either in track and field, or endurance running sessions.
This gives a great insight into coaching before considering taking the next step to getting qualified.
All of our coaches who work with young or vulnerable people are required to undergo an Enhanced DBS check before being able to assist. This is to protect our vulnerable members, and is something we can arrange for you.
Specific training or knowledge is not required for many of the roles, although some do require specific skillsets or prior experience.
We always have a need for support from the wider community with activities that are not specifically tied to athletics, whether it's running the food and drink stall at home events, assisting with grounds maintenance, or equipment repair. We always need a helping hand with areas of club matters that don't require a specific interest in the operational side of the club. Specific areas we are interested in recruiting for at the moment include:
- Food and Drink Stall Operator
- Grounds Maintenance
