Blyth Junior Section is currently seeing an increase in numbers. Increased athlete capacity requires additional coaches and volunteer helpers. It is important to limit group sizes to ensure athlete safety and optimise coaching. This is a significant challenge. If you feel you can offer help in any way you can register your interest by contacting Keith Willshire at email@example.com or 01670-362668. There are coaching courses available and the club usually covers the cost of any course.
As the club grows, so does our need for volunteers. Parent helpers are urgently needed to help keep our sessions safe and fun. You don’t need to be an athlete to help out our sessions, simply an enthusiasm for helping the children have fun in athletics. If you’re interested to know more please come and have a chat.
