How You Can Support Your Club

Open Meetings

We are holding an Open Development Meeting in the evening on Tuesday 6th June and we need
people to help the officials run the field events. It would be great to see some new faces helping out.

The start times are as follows;

6.05pm Javelin U13 & above
6.30pm Pole Vault U15 & above

Please let the know where we can slot your name in.

Working Groups

We are setting up some informal groups to look at the way the club is organised and would welcome your views. Please contact the , or any of the committee, to let them know which of the groups below you would like to be involved with, or find out more about.

➢ Competitions
➢ Coaching
➢ Track and Field
➢ Cross Country and Road

Travelling to Competitions

We are reviewing the travel arrangements for U18 athletes travelling to competitions. We currently offer 3 or 4 pick-up/drop off points but are considering reducing this to reduce the commitment on team managers.

To help with the current arrangements please can you ensure that all U18s are collected by a parent/ carer promptly at the bus drop off points. If the athlete is walking home or being collected by someone else the team manager needs to informed in writing before the day. It is a long day for all especially those who are the first on the coach and the last off.

We would welcome support from parents who are willing to travel on the coach and support the team managers. We will be ensuring that there will be an adult on the bus (in addition to the driver) until the last drop off.


Have you filled in the members’ survey?

Last summer we were relegated from 3 Athletics leagues. The club committee would like to explore reasons for this to help us improve club performance and make sure we are providing for what our athletes want. Please help us by filling in this short survey. Return by the end of May.

*NB – please do not fill this survey in if you have submitted a paper copy*

Copies will be available at the Open Meeting or ask the Athletes' Representative or your Coach.
