New certificates coming your way!

February 13, 2017

We have just received notification that we now have a new level of award to present to Young Leaders and Volunteers on this site.

 

We have gone PLATINUM! 

 

To achieve this accolade you must log a total of 2000 hours on this community site, which is no easy feat.

 

It is hoped that this milestone will set apart those truly exceptional volunteers in our sport from the rest.

 

Although it may seem like a large step up, it is here to really set apart those that are committed to volunteering in athletics with those that do the odd bit here and there.

 

We hope that it isn’t too far away to act as a deterrent, but that it gives you a target at which you can call yourself a truly exceptional volunteer. However, every volunteer is invaluable to our sport, as without you we wouldn't be where we are today.

 

So for all volunteers, think back to this famous quote:

"Volunteers don’t get paid - not because they’re worthless, but because they’re priceless."

 

Remember this is merely a milestone and there is no limit to the amount of your time that you can donate to athletics.

 

So, make a choice for athletics to be your sport for life, and help foster and develop the next generation of athletics loving volunteers.
