High Jump Officiating
Parent participation is required to help the club offer a full scope of events. Our track club is responsible for officiating the high jump event at every island track meet. There will be a short, high jumping clinic put on for all parents in the near future, the date to be announced. Every family is expected to participate in officiating the high jumping event at every meet that they attend. This will only require an hour or two for the full weekend. There are seven island series track meets.
CVAC hosts our annual Garriock Meet, which is a huge success because of our awesome volunteers! The club needs a large number of volunteers to se-tup and take down equipment, organize, officiate ... serve food in order to host this event.
Criminal Record Check
BC Athletics (our governing body) requires that all volunteer coaches have a criminal record check done. If you have graciously volunteered to be a coach this year, please take the attached letter to the local RCMP to have your check done.
