Conveners & Marshals
Sport Staff One provides experienced conveners & marshals for all sports events. Our aim is to assist sport coordinators with the smooth running of gala days, swimming & athletics tournaments, cross-country and other large-scale events. We know how important it is to coordinate teams, fixtures, equipment and officials, so we supply skilled staff to competently facilitate events ‘on the ground’.
At the operational level, challenges tend to present themselves at the last minute that require on the spot decision making without fear or favour. SSO conveners & marshals are trusted to make the right call in the interests of maximising participation, adhering to safety protocols and promoting fair play and enjoyment.
