Thriving and welcoming community athletics club

Volunteering – being part of the team

We view athletic competitions as a great opportunity for our volunteers and parents to enjoy being part of the club and contributing to our performance at them. This would be as a qualified official (for which there is a simple entry level course that the club would pay for), or as a parent helper (raking sand pits, collecting throwing equipment, etc). Being an official earns points for the team and being a parent helper is being part of the team!

Athletic clubs can only function because of the support we get from volunteers – parents, carers, supporters, ex athletes.…in fact anyone with an interest in the sport and wanting to help athletes to perform.

The amount of time required can be as little as an hour, we are always willing to liaise and be flexible around people’s availability.

We are always looking for:

  • Officials to help on match days
  • Team managers and assistants to help with event entries and team management both before and during competitions
  • Volunteers to help with events, particularly when we have home matches
  • Volunteers to help with catering and refreshments when we have home matches
  • Coaches and assistants

The club’s chairman Nick Pearson said “I would like to take this opportunity to thank all the key volunteers that have supported the club in 2023, the Executive Committee, the wider committee, the coaches, team managers and officials, and also the match/race day volunteers, often parents, who step up and help on key days”. He also said “It is important to remember that our coaches and officials are volunteers who give WSEH a huge amount of their time to help the club survive and thrive. As much as it is a cliché that the club couldn’t operate without these key volunteers, it is a cliché that is true, and we are incredibly appreciative of our group of key and regular qualified coaches and officials, whose passion for the club allows us to operate to the scale that we do” and “I am also delighted that we’ve seen an increase in the number of parent volunteers supporting the club in the last 12 months. Parent volunteers make a huge impact in releasing the pressure on the more regular volunteers, and I’d like to personally thank everyone that stepped in to help over the last year”.
