Description of volunteer track positions
Ball Throw Assistants: Help spot ball landing point and then measure the distance from that point to “throw line.” The measuring tape typically has a stick on the end so that person on the landing point end does not have to bend down all the way to the ground. The person on the measurement end will have to kneel or bend to the ground to see the measurement and then read that measurement to the event leader who is a CYO representative.
Long Jump Assistants: Help measure the distance of the jump and rake the pit. The CYO representative watches for scratch (invalid) jumps and helps define the measurement point. One end of the measuring tape will have a stick so that person won’t need to bend down, but the person at the measurement end will need to bend down or kneel at the board. A rake will be provided by meet staff and the pit will need to be raked between each jump.
High Jump Assistants: Help put the crossbar back on the high jump standards after it is knocked off then help raise the crossbar and help verify the height each time the height increases.
Shot Put Assistants: Help spot shot landing point and measure the distance back to the shot put ring. Again, there will be a stick on one end of the measure tape, but the person on the measurement end will need to bend down to get the correct measurement. The CYO representative will help with the measurement ensuring that it is done correctly.
Timers: Time the running events and spot the finishing places. Typically, one timer will time the first place person and a different timer second place, etc, etc. For the regular meets, there are no preliminaries, those happen at City Meet.
Curve Judges: Only help during the relays. They help the kids get to the hand off zones, signal to the starter when all of the relay runners are ready and then make sure all hand offs are legal.
