Each year the Athletics Squad is assisted by an enthusiastic group of parents, the “On Track” club, whose support is invaluable. They provide food and drink for the boys on competition days and present medals to boys who have been outstanding athletes through the season. There are also roles to help with other activities during the season.
If you are interested in joining “On Track”, or helping with Athletics please contact President Mark Klemens at MKlemens@profiletalent.com.au.
Parents of athletes are warmly encouraged to attend the Family Night to be held on Friday 10th August 2012. Your son is also welcome to this special occasion.
