Situations Vacant – Relay Coaches for the 2018 Relay Season

A message from our Relay Coordinator - Angela Dickins

It’s time again folks – time to start thinking of the athletics season and getting our relay season organised.  After such a successful season last year, it’s time to start thinking relays. 

We are looking for relay coaches to coach our teams.  We will have coaching vacancies for the following ages;

  • Under 9 Boys
  • Under 11 Girls
  • Under 12 Girls
  • Under 12 Boys
  • Under 13 Girls
  • Under 14 Boys
  • Under 14 Girls
  • Under 16’s

Important dates for the relay calendar for this season

  • Keilor relay day – Sunday 28th October
  • Box Hill Relay Day – tbc
  • Mentone Relay Day – Sunday 11th November
  • Keilor relay challenge – Saturday 10th November
  • NMR Relay Championships – Saturday November 17th
  • Keilor Relay Challenge – Saturday 8th December (State relay qualifiers)
  • LAVIC State Relay Championships – Saturday 15th December


We are looking for motivated coaches to coach our 2018 relay teams. I would prefer our volunteers have links to the club (like parents, older siblings, family members etc).  This is a great opportunity for those that wish to be a part of things.  In such an individual sport, relays is such an exciting and fun 'Team' event for the kids - we want as many as possible to be involved.

So come of folks - let’s all get involved! 

Brief description of the role;

  • attend and run weekly coaching sessions
  • liaise with parents (I am also here to help if you need assistance in this matter)
  • attend information sessions that will be held for our relay coaches
  • liaise with the relay co-ordinator
  • team selection

If you aren’t sure that you have what it takes, there are a number of us available to provide assistance.  Please contact me if you are unsure and you have any questions - you won’t be left on your own. 

Please phone me on 0412 902 423 or email me if you are interested in volunteering as a coach.   Please advise me if there is a particular age group that you wish to coach.

Looking forward to hearing from you – I want to be FLOODED with volunteers.
