The Parent Duty Roster is here. Before requesting changes to the roster, please keep the following points in mind:

  1. Mentone Relay Day is the biggest day of the season for our centre.  The day cannot proceed without support from all families involved.
  2. Creating and managing the roster is a difficult and stressful task.  Glenda, Marie and Erina have put in hours of work on it already.
  3. Each family has been allocated a duty, with families of multiple athletes allocated a second duty as relief.  If multiple duties are performed this will be taken into consideration the following week at Region relays.
  4. Please be aware of your duty and report to Parent Duty Co-ordinator 10 mins prior to the start time. Also ensure your name is marked off as performing your duty, DO NOT go directly to the duty position.
  5. If you are unable to perform your duty, you will need to find someone to take your place.  Your team managers should be able to help you contact others in your child's age group.
  6. Once you have found someone to take your place, please email the change to
  7. Failure to perform your allocated duty may result in your child being unable to participate at Relay Day or Regional/State Events.

Your cooperation and understanding will be greatly appreciated.

Looking forward to a great day on Sunday!
