Committee Members Needed for Key Roles!

The Committee is up and running but many committee members have multiple roles and they are busy,  It would be great to recruit a few more committee members to spread the load and get some fresh ideas and perspectives into the committee.  Key roles to be filled are:

 - Assistant Registrar

- Assistant On-Track Official (running the on-track program for the U6s with Mel)

- Equipment Officer

- Recording Officer (in charge of collating results)

- Timing Gate supervisor - for this we need someone who loves the challenge of technology!  Our supervisor from last season is having a well deserved break and we need a replacement.  If you would like the challenge of making Woden Thunder the club that makes best use of this technology then pls let us know


The WLAC committee are committed to ensuring that Little Athletics is and continues to be fun for the athletes and their families. If there are any issues, big or small, good or bad, please talk to a committee member. We are here to help.
