Our sport relies heavily on volunteers each week to operate as successfully as we do, at the end of the 22-23 season we sadly said farewell to a number of our long-term Officials - each who've contributed countless hours, endless support and provided a backbone for pro running in Victoria. The VAL Board and community are beyond grateful for their contribution and dedication, they will be sorely missed in seasons to come.
Their departures mean we have some large gaps to fill in our VAL officiating team to ensure the coordination, implementation, and success of the 2023-24 season.
As such, we call on you, our VAL community for your help - are you a parent, sibling, past runner, current athlete, family member, friend or spectator that might be interested in getting closer to the action, learning a new skill, giving back to the sport, or simply earning some bonus cash? We have several key Official roles to fill before the 23-24 season and would love to hear from you, see the roles and what they entail below.
Each volunteer role receives a VAL uniform, financial honorarium for their time and accommodation/travel reimbursements where applicable. If you have any questions or would like more information, please feel free to get in touch with Taylah in the VAL office, via email@example.com or on 03 4239 0211.
Let's work together and prepare the 23/24 season for launch!
