Parent/Guardian Responsibilities

The motto of Little Athletics is "Family, Fun, and Fitness", and we rely upon all of our parents and guardians as volunteers, to achieve this for our athletes.

Our Centre needs the assistance of parents/guardians as volunteers to run all of our programmed events safely, and successfully.

Under the COVID-Safe Competition Protocols for the 2021/22 Season, every athlete (U6-U16) must be supervised by a parent or guardian at every event. And every parent/guardian must be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 (or have a medical exemption).  No exceptions.  We appreciate that there will be practical issues for families with more than one child competing, but this will be managed sensibly. 

The Event Official will call upon supervising parents/guardians to assist with running the event (i.e. measuring and recording results, disinfecting equipment, hand sanitising before and after each event/attempt).  Supervising parents will play a key role in ensuring that there is no contact between athletes, 1.5m physical distancing is strictly observed along with good hygiene practices.  We thank all parents and guardians in advance for their support.

There will be a QR Code at every entry to the track.  We seek the support of parents/guardians to ensure that QR Code check-in is completed for each family member in attendance each week.

Spectators are discouraged from attending whilst COVID-19 restrictions remain in place.
