Organising Committee

An organising committee should preferably represent a cross section of stakeholders (members from different clubs, coaches, athletes, officials etc). Effective committees are large enough to handle the workload but small enough to work efficiently. Make sure each member of the OC understands their primary responsibilities, but remains flexible enough to pick up other responsibilities if necessary.

We recommend the following roles on an organising committee;

  • Venue Secretary
    • Coordinates with the venue (equipment, timetable etc)
  • Officials Secretary
    • Invites and coordinates the officials
  • Entries Secretary
    • Processes entries and is responsible for seeding and number assignment
  • Treasurer
    • Looks after the budget and pays invoices

In addition, the following roles may be appointed to the committee;

  • Media secretary
  • Sponsorship Secretary
