Get more people involved in officiating in your club or local area!

Would your club or group really benefit from involving more officials, or do you know a club in your area that would? Are you unsure where to start to get more people involved? If so putting on an Officials Taster Session, could be a great way of raising awareness of the opportunities available and highlight what a positive experience officiating is!

Burton Athletics Club recently hosted an Officials Taster Session at the club to encourage more parents to get involved. They used the free resources available on our website from Team Personal Best to help them with the day, and following the taster session, hosted a Level 1 Field Course at the club to allow those interested to continue their officiating journey.
