Get into Officiating
All athletes need Technical Officials in order to compete fairly and using the same Rules. Technical Officials follow a prescribed pathway to as far as the individual wants. No-one will put any pressure on anyone to move along the pathway. Technical Officials often score points for the Club by being at a meeting and being prepared to officiate.
Technical Officials can choose their own specialist discipline – there are 5 to choose from. Those disciplines are Starting and Starter’s Assistant, Track Judging, Timekeeping, Photo Finish and Field Judging in Track & Field.
There is also the opportunity to become an Endurance Official (mainly Road Racing and Cross Country).
The Club’s Officials Officer is Barry Parker (a Level 4 Track Judge, L3 Photo Finish, L2 Timekeeper, L2 Field Judge and L4 Endurance and Level 1 Track and Endurance Tutor).
- Level 1 is the basic Level for Club matches
- Level 2 is capable of working at County level
- Level 3 working at Area/Regional level (I.e. Northern, Midlands competitions)
- Level 4 National and International standard
