Just before we get to the registration information...
Did you know that Kew Little Athletics Centre is run entirely by Parent volunteers?
This is why we need your help!
Parental participation is essential for the Kew Little Athletics Centre to run successfully. No program of Little Athletics competition can be held without the help of parents to act as officials. Each week a minimum of 40 parents are needed to run the Track and Field program(!). During the Cross Country season parents assist when Kew hosts an event. Assistance is also required for Region and State Track and Field and Cross Country events.
A requirement of registration at Kew Little Athletics Centre is that parents/guardians agree to participate in a duty roster system to help out with one of the positions required to run the program each Saturday morning during the Track and Field season. Your family will be allocated a duty several times over the season. If you are unable to perform your duty on a particular day, we ask that you please swap with another parent. You do not require any particular skills or knowledge to be able to assist. Anyone can help in some way. Examples include:
Measuring jumps or throws
Raking long jump pits
Cooking sausages and assisting at the canteen
Set up equipment
Supervising the children
Packing up equipment
Each family will be rostered on according to the age group of their child. It is vital that the parent attend this day!
Finally, athletes must have a parent/guardian or responsible adult in attendance at all times. The Centre and Age Managers are not responsible for athletes left unattended prior to the start of, during competition/training or after the completion of a program. Children are not to be dropped off prior to the commencement of the morning’s program without adult supervision.
Kew Little Aths has decided to use the TeamApp platform. This platform has some wonderful features that we feel will make it easier for the Centre. It will enable KEWLAC to easily and quickly send notifications to families (ie competition cancelled due to weather etc), host our weekly programs, our events, our calendar and our weekly duty rosters. TeamApp can be accessed via a mobile device or a computer. Search for ‘Kew Little Athletics Centre’ and request access to all relevant access groups, including the ‘All Kew Little Athletes and Families’ and age group access groups relevant for your child. Whilst using this app is not mandatory in the Kew Little Aths, we hope all families use it. If your family chooses to use the app, the most important part of setup is using the same email address in the LAVic registration process and TeamApp signup.
