This season we are implementing a Compulsory component and an Encouragement component to our volunteering program.
For the Compulsory Component the amount of compulsory volunteering is 5 on field PLUS an additional 1 set up per family. To help set up for the day, you need to be there by 7:30am. This ensures that there are no delays in starting the events and that there is enough helpers to ensure an event program that is fun and varied for the kids!
For the Encouragement Component of the program we are introducing an end of season Raffle for helpers who have volunteered over the compulsory 6 times. For each time you volunteer over the compulsory requirement you receive a ticket in the raffle (capped at 5 tickets per family). Prizes include a paid membership for one athlete, a personal coaching session for one family, movie tickets, a uniform jacket and more! We are also introducing Recognition Awards for the top 10 helpers of the season! Both reward programs exclude Committee members.
If you are worried about not being able to watch your children in their events, at Craigieburn Little Athletics we encourage parents/guardians to pause the events that they are assisting with to be able to watch you children compete in their events. After all, we all love supporting and encouraging our children!
There will be more information about our new Volunteering Program in the coming weeks!
Unfortunately, where there are not enough volunteers to attend at all scheduled events by 8:45am, events will be cancelled. This ensures that all the remaining events can be run smoothly and without any delay.
The registration fee at Craigieburn Little Athletics for the 2018/2019 Season is $150 per child. This includes the cost of registration with Little Athletics Victoria and insurance ($75).
