As part of Athletics WA’s (AWA) commitment to providing events and services that are in accordance with the expectations of our members, the Board of AWA has approved the establishment of a Competition Advisory Group (CAG). The CAG helps to guide the future of the Athletics in Western Australia.
The CAG is a voluntary group who meet at least three times a year to work together with and provide advice and recommendations to AWA for future programs, events and services across a number of areas including:
- Athlete, club, coach and officials pathways;
Innovation within the sport;
- Competition products (including timetables and scheduling of events – weekly meets, Club v Club, State relays etc); and
- Programs to assist athletes, coaches, officials and club administrators.
The CAG currently consists of 6 representatives (excluding the Chair) from the following groups:
- Three registered AWA athletes (a mix of track and field athletes);
- Two registered Coach’s (one track and one field); and
- One registered Official.
The CAG is chaired by Ms Louise Soia, a current AWA Board member and participating athlete.
The purpose of the CAG is to be representative of the entire AWA membership and will be formed to provide an opportunity for members to be actively involved in the management of our sport.
We are currently seeking Expression of Interests for an additional member following the resignation of Kiara Reddingius - preferably an athlete representative for jumps and/or multi events.
