Blue Card
All Cairns Athletic Committee Members, Chief Officials, Canteen Conveners and Team Managers must possess a Blue Card. A register is kept of all volunteers who currently hold a blue card, including number and expiry date.

Parent helpers are not required to hold a Blue Card, although we do encourage them, and forms are available from the Club Registrar or online.
Officials
Parents are encouraged to become qualified Officials. They are an integral part of our club, not only vital for our carnivals, but the knowledge gained increases competency on the field each club day. This ensures smooth running of all events. If you are interested in becoming an Official please see one of committee members to register your interest.
