To enable our athletes to be the best that they can, we need people who are willing to volunteer some of their time to help out. As a club, we always need help in a variety of roles – we’re always happy to chat about what you would like to get out of helping and fit around you where we can.
Athletes need coaches, but they also need officials to judge and record their performances. If you’re interested in becoming an official – you could be a starter / marksman, timekeeper or judge – there are plenty of opportunities.
To begin with, it might all seem very daunting. But we’ll always support and assist everyone that would like to help out in any capacity. There are numerous structured courses run throughout the year by England Athletics which will support you in achieving.
2012 was a fantastic year with the Olympic and Paralympic Games Maker’s making such a difference to the whole event. So if you’d like to make a difference and help the athletes of the future, why not become an East Grinstead Athletics Maker and contact the coaching coordinator for more details.
