A great club needs great people. We are looking for parent helpers on Thursday track nights through the spring/summer athletics programme. At times last year we had in excess of 120 young Harrier's at the track. The coaches need assistance with organising the groups, marshalling activities and assisting with ensuring high standards of behaviour are the norm.
We are also looking for additional coaches to assist with senior training.
If interested please let us know and come and have a chat.
