Weekly Centre Meets
Our centre meets are conducted at Jack Cook Park on alternate Friday evenings and Saturday afternoons. The meet commences with an update from our centre manager.
Athletes assemble in their age groups, carry out a warm-up routine and then take part in a scheduled program of five events (two field, usually three track; possibly some games or fitness circuits for the younger age groups) proceeding from event to event in the charge of age marshals.
The field map identifies where events are held on the field and also provides information regarding where supporters/parents are allowed due to COVID-19.
Each week around 70 - 90 volunteers are required to successfully run our weekly meet. If you are unsure about volunteering, please talk to Barbara our officials coordinator (firstname.lastname@example.org) as she is the best source of help and information. Barbara can generally be found in the tent adjacent the clubhouse and is easily spotted by the line of volunteers getting their names marked off! Alternatively, Trudy our centre manager or any committee member are always available to answer your questions.
To thank you for volunteering, the family deposit portion of your fees will be refunded in approx May 2022 when 12 volunteer sessions per family have been completed for the season. It is important to ensure your session has been correctly recorded so please make your way to Barbara before the meet starts so she can record your attendance. This is regardless of using the link to register for a role.
If time gets away on you as it tends to do and you did not preregister a role, please make your way to Barbara to see what roles are vacant.
The season calendar is a selection of key shield meets, competitions and events that the club hosts and encourages members to support. There is no requirement for athletes to register for our centre meet. Just turn up on the day and have fun!
