Little Athletics NSW has put together a series of Basic Event Fact Sheets and videos, aimed at providing centre volunteers with the essential knowledge for helping at an event at the local centre.
For a quick overview the following video is a great reference:
The fact sheets are a suitable resource for people with little or no knowledge of the sport and cover such things as:
- ages and correct specifications for the various age groups
- basic instruction on how to do the event
- basic rules
- basic officiating procedures
- safety considerations
- handy tips for conducting the event at centre level
Please note that LANSW have changed some details such as shot put weights etc, however these facts sheets are still a great resource in getting to know the basics.
