Parent Involvement

PARENT DUTIES - We expect & need all our families to help out 

WLAC is a non profit volunteer organisation that relies on the assistance of parents to operate. Therefore, ALL families who register athletes in the Little Athletics program are required to contribute to its operation.

To successfully operate the Little Athletics program on a weekly basis (which often involves over 150 athletes participating at one time), we require between 50 - 60 people to run the program.

WLAC therefore asks that every registered family assists every week. Duty may include measuring jumps or throws, raking the long jump pits, assisting age group leaders or recording results. 

Duty positions are very easy and assistance is provided to those who are new or are unsure. WLAC will also be looking for some more "Key Officials" such as Event Managers, Age Group Leaders and Starters.  


Training is available - please contact the Centre Mentor - This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Or LAVic has produced a series of YouTube videos about how to run and officiate the events, at a centre level: LAVic Volunteer & Officiating Videos

And some videos re coaching tips for Centre Volunteers.

More information can be found the LAVic website: https://lavic.com.au/education/


WLAC will maintain a list and keep track of those families who do duty on a weekly basis.

In some extraordinary circumstances families may be unable to assist. In this instance, a $50 duty levy fee may be requested to be paid .... in lieu of completing duty.

By completing the Registration process, parents are accepting the conditions stipulated in the WLAC Parent's Charter and the LAVic Privacy and Parent - Guardian Declaration Statement.
