Get more people involved in officiating in your club or local area! Support resources available
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! You can also access free resources from Team Personal Best to help with this or other types of activity.
Why is it such a great thing to do?
- Share the great experiences you provide with as many people as possible
- Attract new volunteers to help out at the club or at competitions in your area
Engage with the local community as well as people inside your club
When can it be delivered?
You could deliver a session at a competition or on a normal club night. Whatever works best for you, the most important thing is to let people know there are opportunities for them to take part in and give them a taster of how positive an experience officiating can be.
Supporting you to deliver an officials taster session!
To help with the planning, promotion and delivery of these sessions, we have FREE resources available to download an order which include; posters and banners to help advertise the session, templates with ideas of what to include within an officials taster session, T-shirts for you and others to wear on the day, as well as pens, badges and wristbands to give away!
How can I order the resources?
