When there are uncertain weather conditions a final decision about any cancellation is usually made about 2 hours prior to the event start time and will be published on this web site.

During the season if you have a registered email address and there is certainty that the event will be cancelled you will also be emailed about this.  Please always rely upon the web site and TeamApp (if you are enrolled) as being the best source of information about cancellation, this will posted on the home page.

If we feel there is no chance we will run any competition day, information about this will be published on this web site as soon as possible after the decision has been made.

What are the Arena & Setup and Pull-Down Volunteer Bonds and how do I receive a refund?

The Arena and Set-up and Pull-Down Volunteer Bonds are used as an incentive for parents/guardians to actively assist the Club. A refund is provided to those families who help out a certain number of times during the season (or in most cases the Bond/s are rolled over and it appears as a discount in the following season's enrolment). 

The Arena Volunteer Bond is $50 and is refundable when parents/guardians assist the club for 8 or more times during the season's Saturday competitions.  The Field setup and pull-down Bond is $30 and is refundable if you assist with 3 or more times during the season. You must sign the applicable Volunteer Roster, as these are the only records we have that indicate you have helped.

Refunds are made at the beginning of the following season (usually August or early September) as the information about who is entitled to a refund is calculated at this time. If you are not planning to come back and have actively helped the Club we are happy to arrange for a refund of your Bond/s.

Families who have an active member on our Committee are not required to pay either Bond and are not required to fill out either weekly Volunteer Roster.

It is very important that you sign the applicable Vounteer Roster to be entitled to receive the Bond/s refund, otherwise we will have no proof you have helped. 

If you have any questions, please email or discuss this with our committee members.

What can I do to help?

There are many roles available to choose from. Some are committee roles which involve attending some meetings and may require additional time outside of the Saturday Competition.

Other roles are just required on Competition Day. Please refer to the City North Little Athletics Club Handbook.
