Get Involved in Athletics

Volunteers are an integral part of athletics and without them the sport would not run.

All our coaches and club officials volunteer their time to provide opportunities for others to participate within athletics.

We rely 100% on volunteers to run the club, coach our athletes and officiate at meetings. There are many ways in which you can help support your club and local, regional and national athletics. If you are interested, please contact us.
