IN 2021/22 – ONLY AGE MANAGERS AND VOLUNTEERS WHO ARE SIGNED UP FOR THAT SESSION ARE ALLOWED ON THE OVAL IN THE MLA ROPED OFF AREA.
The operation of our Club relies on parents volunteering to assist. Part of the registration process requires those parents who have elected to pay the standard registration fee (as opposed to the non-volunteer registration fee) to complete a Volunteer Declaration form which requires not less than volunteering on four occasions per child throughout the season, via the sign up icon on the homepage.
The Volunteer Declaration Form needs to be completed with your volunteering commitments and will include an authority requiring your credit card details.
Failure to turn up for your nominated duty will serve as an authority for the Club to deduct your credit card with a charge (currently set at $30.00) per occurrence. Any shortfall in your volunteering obligations (4 per child), revealed at our end of season audit, will incur a $30 charge per failure to attend e.g. if you only fulfil 2 of your 4 obligations your credit card will be charged $60.
Both this Volunteer Declaration form and a printout of your volunteer commitments (via the Volunteer link below) must be completed prior to attending one of our Registration Collection Days. To save time, you can upload your completed form when you sign up online prior to Registration Collection Day.
Volunteers should arrive 15 minutes before the start of the session to allow for sign in and check procedures ie Junior volunteers arrive 4pm, Senior volunteers arrive 6pm.
There are 4 competition nights each season, each requiring more than double the usual number of volunteers to assist. Only volunteers are allowed on the oval on Competition Nights, so if you wish to watch your child compete you must volunteer.
2021/2022 Competition Night dates:
25 October 2021
8 November 2021
31 January 2022
28 February 2022
Volunteering requirements for the season do not include the additional duties required if your child(ren) qualify for Championship events like Zone or State Relays. For these events, there will be a separate duty roster for the weekends they are conducted. MLA is required to provide proportionate support to all other Centres that compete, so this means that all Championship families are required to do duties for Championship events.

This role involves the weekly monitoring of the volunteer duty sign up system and being at training at the start of each Junior and Senior session to manage the volunteers signing in. The Volunteer Manager also carries out checks to ensure families are fulfilling their nominated duties. This role can be shared. Please contact the Committee on email@example.com if you would like to find out more about this role.
An Age Manager is required for each gender and age group (U6 to U17) and we like to have our Age Managers signed up before the Season begins in October. It is possible for the role to be shared between two people. Please contact the Committee on firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to take on this important role. This season, each Age Manager will receive an information pack at the start of the season and support and guidance will be provided with our new safety guidelines.
