Volunteering Australia’s National Volunteer Week runs from Monday 18th May – Sunday 24th May 2020. This week is an annual celebration to acknowledge the generous contribution of Australia’s volunteers. This year’s theme is Changing Communities. Changing Lives.
Volunteers at Little Athletics do exactly that, change communities and change lives, they are the heart and soul of Little Athletics. Every centre, competition, and event at Little Athletics has some form of volunteers involved, whether that be at centre level where it is entirely volunteer-run up to the Australian Little Athletics Championships which would be impossible to go ahead without our those who generously give their time to the community.
From the parents that run the canteen, to the members on the centre committee, to the coaches who volunteer their afternoons simply to help kids achieve be their best, to those who measure and record each jump into the pit every week, Little Athletics wants to take time to recognise that without you, we simply wouldn’t be the same! We also would like to recognise our hardworking officials who spend their weekends travelling across New South Wales to attend zone and regional carnivals, and this year travelled to Tamworth for the State Combined Events. Our officials jointly volunteer their time for both Athletics NSW and Little Athletics NSW events. Every official has volunteered numerous hours for their love of athletics and giving back to the community. Without our officials, our championships would simply not be possible.
Little Athletics NSW would love to hear about a volunteer that means a lot to your centre! Let us know who they are and why they are special to your community!
