NTFC Volunteers

The Nanaimo Track and Field Club is run solely by volunteers.  Board members and all coaches are  volunteers.  There are many ways that parents of athletes can help the Club and we encourage everyone to do so as best they can.   Board positions are currently open and we are always looking for experienced coaches, coach assistants or those willing to take coach training in a specific event area. 

Each family is required to volunteer 15 hours during Track Season or pay a $200 volunteer hour deposit fee. The intention is to have as many volunteers as possible. It is each parents responsibility to record their hours.


Volunteers are ALWAYS needed in the following areas:

Assist coaches during practices

  • setting up and putting away equipment before and after practices (hurdles, cones, mats, wickets)

  • grandstand garbage sweep 

  • raking long jump pits

  • raking shot put area

  • collecting garbage around clubhouse

  • setting up Lost + Found

  • tidying Clubhouse (vacuuming, bathrooms, etc) and Concession

  • assist with team uniform sales organization and distribution
