Now in our 54th year Caulfield Little Athletics is about family, fun and fitness. To run a successful program, Team Caulfield needs the support and involvement of approximately 60 parent helpers to be able to conduct all the events successfully on competition day.
Parent volunteers ensure the success of our centre both on and off track. This can be through assisting to measure, record and coach our children or supporting the running of the organisation or event in an off track role, such as serving on our Committee.
Little Athletics is not a child drop-off nor is it a child-minding sport.
A parent/guardian must be present at the track whenever their child is training or competing.
It is the obligation of all families registering at Caulfield to nominate for a duty role and complete that role on a minimum of 50% of the meets that your children participates.
Parents of U6 On Track athletes are not required to nominate for duty when their U6 child is the only member of the family registered.
For people new to Little Athletics, the obligations of duty can be a little daunting, but be assured committee members and experienced coordinators will be on hand to support you until you get the hang of it. While duty is an obligation it is also a differentiator for our sport. It’s a great way to get involved in your child’s athletic development and get involved in the community. Many great friendships for families form through the club.
