What Your Child Will Need to be part of Clubnights
Helping out on club nights
Parent volunteers help run our clubnights to ensure that the activities run smoothly each evening.
Your help could include:
Every bit of assistance helps the clubnights run smoothly for the benefit of our children.
If you feel you are able to assist in any other way than just on club night, please let us know - we would welcome your help. The committee is relaxed and informal, but ensures the club’s progress.
Safety and sportmanship
Please be hyper-aware of safety around the shot-put and discus circles. The children do not always throw straight, and getting hit can be serious or fatal. The shot put and discus should only be thrown in turns, from the circle. Be strict about making everyone stand behind the thrower.
Good sportsmanship is important. All parents need to encourage good behavior and should have confidence that it is ok to provide friendly correction (because all good kids step out of line from time to time). If a situation can’t be handled on the spot, have a quiet word with the junior co-ordinator.
The following areas are out of bounds during athletics:
Parents/Caregivers please do not allow your children to visit these areas, as safety is paramount.
Bicycles, skateboards, balls, etc: Please, club nights are for athletics - keep these and similar items off the cycle track and grassed area. Auckland Council cares for the grounds, which are shared with other sports groups. We need to respect that and take care of the turf.
