Officials & Volunteers

Like most sporting clubs and non-profit organisations we rely solely on volunteers for the club to exist.
We are in desperate need of new volunteers to assist as officials at race meetings and helpers in the canteen.

Our club coaches are always looking for help at club coaching sessions. (speak with our coaches to see how you can do this).

We also rely on volunteers to assist with the general cleaning and tidying of the clubrooms, toilets and surrounds. Working bees are held a couple of times per year in an attempt to have a major spring clean.
There are many areas during race meetings requiring officials. Training is given until you feel confident to have a go on your own. Officials are accredited by the State Officiated Director.
