Parent Volunteers – Get involved

Love getting involved in junior sport and have an interest in helping kids develop within the Little Athletics program?

There are a range of areas for parents to extend their involvement and understanding of the sport of athletics. Little Athletics is run through the dedication of so many parents who volunteer their time to help make the athletic experience for kids a great one.  You can:

        Join the Ringwood Starter’s team

        Be part of the Ringwood Little Athletics Centre (RLAC) committee

        Become an Official and officiate at Regional and possibly even State events

        Judge Race Walking

        Become an Age Group Manager at Ringwood

        Become a Coach

        Specialise in Relays Team Management

        Manage Track & Field teams

        Become a Leader in the ‘On Track’ program for kids U6 to U8

Step forward, we will gladly show you the path and help you develop the knowledge and confidence in your chosen area of interest. Contact the Ringwood Little Athletics Centre through to get things started. 


The Ringwood Little Athletics Centre thanks all of the past and present parent volunteers.  Without your time, dedication and hard work, this centre would not have built such a successful foundation, which will be of benefit for current and future families for years to come.  Please continue to build the success, become a parent volunteer today, email your interest to

Parent Participation and duties

RLAC requires about 70 volunteers each competition day to ensure all events are available to athletes and that each event is offered a number of times during the season.  Without the required number of officials, events may be cancelled or delayed, and athletes will miss out.


Parents are required to sign-up for a duty using the sign up genius link sent each week to assist with an age group to assist on setup, canteen, BBQ and Pack-Up, each week.  Being a volunteer parent is critical to the success of the centre.  Please remember to give volunteering a go and if you get stuck or are unsure, our committee will be happy to assist you.
