Get into officiating

All athletes need Technical Officials in order to compete fairly and using the same rules. Technical Officials follow a prescribed pathway as far as the individual wants. Technical Officials can gain points for the Club by being at a meeting and being prepared to officiate.

Technical Officials can choose their own specialist discipline – there are five to choose from. Those disciplines are Starting and Starter’s Assistant, Track Judging, Timekeeping, Photo Finish and Field Judging in Track and Field.

There is also the opportunity to become an Endurance Official (mainly Road Racing and Cross Country).

The Club’s Officials Officers are Ernie Cripps  and Bemingo Etuwewe.

  • Level 1 is the basic level for Club matches
  • Level 2 is capable of working at County level
  • Level 3 means working at Area/Regional level (Northern, Midlands competitions)
  • Level 4 is National and International standard

Full details of all courses can be obtained on the England athletics website by following this link Officials: England Athletics
