To allow the Track and Field League to run smoothly and to time we would ask if parents could assist for at least one evening in the season. You will be asked to do a non technical task like pulling the tape through, raking the sandpit or retrieving the cricket ball, discus or shot putt. You will be working with a qualified judge who will assist you. We will have a chart available and it would be greatly appreciated if you would put your name down for at least one evening in the Season.
