Officials Education

There is a lot a fun and satisfaction in being an official at athletics meets. It is great seeing athletes in action up close, and satisfying to know that you have helped to ensure that the competition is held in accordance with best practice.

We always need new officials to help supplement our existing numbers. Keep an eye on this page for upcoming officials education courses and seminars.
