We have a great group of dedicated Volunteers at Hunts AC.
All are Qualified, DBS certified and have completed the relevant safeguarding courses.
I become a timekeeper in Feb 2017, after I was asked if I would volunteer for an official’s role, when my son Tom joined the Club as an athlete. I was a track athlete as a youngster, and remembered the stand of timekeepers at the meetings I used to run at, and was intrigued by what they did, and what the role really involved, so thought I would find out more…
The timekeeping role is varied, and is a little different at each event you time at. All the other timekeepers from different clubs I have met are really helpful and supportive, and when there is electronic timing, it is good to see how accurate you are hand timing, compared to the electronic results.
I am now a Level 2 timekeeper, which means I can time at County meetings, as well as the club EAL’s SAL’s and Club Champs. Both Tom and Jessica compete for the Club, so it means athletics is a pretty big part of my life. It is nice for me to be able to give something back to the sport, that I enjoyed as a participant so much as a youngster, and my children enjoy so much now.
