We also have a number of parents which are either qualified as, or training to become approved track or field officials.

Any parent interesting in training to become a coach or official can speak to Mary or Rob about relevant courses. Having qualified officials at the club can be of great advantage as we have to supply a number of officials to certain events in order for them to go ahead and for us to be allowed to take part.

All coaches/officials hold current CRB (DBS) checks.

At Saffron AC we actively welcome parents and family members to become involved. All offers of help are gratefully received. Please contact Mary or Rob at Saffron AC for more details.

We are based at Saffron Lane Stadium, Leicester, LE2 7NQ.
