Help on Club Nights
Help is essential on club nights for the smooth operation of the club.
Age Managers are required for each age group, boys and girls.
The Age Manager is responsible for their age group, ensuring they get to their events during club nights and that other parents are sharing with the help in running the events.
The Club Calendar is on the website.
This shows what’s on every week including special events like Ribbon Nights.
There is a Junior Timetable and a Senior Timetable on the website
The Senior timetable has a two week rotation. (Week 1 and Week 2)
Points which are awarded throughout the season are accumulated at the end of the season. The first 3 athletes with the most points are awarded trophies. Some age groups have extra trophies for specific categories. Points are awarded for race placings and attendance. It is the responsibility of each athlete/parent to ensure that their attendance on each club night is recorded by their Team Manager on arrival.
Awards and Trophies
It has never been the club policy to give every athlete an award at prize giving. However, there is plenty of opportunities for athletes to earn an award throughout the season. A variety of medals, ribbons, certificates and trophies are awarded both at the end and during the season to all age groups for both track and field events.
Behaviour and Misconduct
All athletes are ambassadors of our club and in the public eye throughout the season. Spitting, swearing, fighting, verbal abuse and general misconduct will not be tolerated. Those athletes behaving in such a manner will be suspended from competing for a time determined by the club committee.
Athletes and Parents who have a genuine grievance or complaint, should in the first instance discuss it with a committee member who will try to resolve the issue. Should the grievance or complaint not be resolved, you may be asked to forward your grievance or complaint in writing to the committee within 7 days. You will receive a hand-written reply within a timely fashion once the committee has reviewed the grievance or complaint.
The History of the Club from 1932 to 1982 can be found at the Auckland Public Library. Enquire at the Information desk.
