Officials' Development

There are endless volunteering experiences that cater for all aspects of athletics meetings. You will have the opportunity to meet lots of different individuals from athletes, coaches and fellow volunteers and officials who share the same passion of athletics.

There are many roles available within the different disciplines of athletics, from measuring throws, to reading a race result in photo-finish, assembling the athletes on the start line or timing athletes as they cross the finish line. Here we detail opportunities and resources to help you develop in your officiating.
