OFFICIALS

As with many other amateur sports, athletics relies on volunteers to run competitions. Parents are often drafted in to rake a sandpit or hold a tape measure, however, many people are unaware that we do actually score points for bringing qualified officials to events! There are several levels of qualifications from level 1 upwards. We will keep you informed of courses running locally.
If you are a parent or grandparent who is often at athletics competitions, please think seriously about becoming an Official. The clubs and the network will support you through the process of becoming qualified.
