Jared and Vina's Officiating journeys

There are many reasons to get involved with Officiating – being part of a community, learning more about the sport, making new friends, and experiencing something new. We caught up with two of our amazing Officials Jared Flannery and Vina Desai to find out a bit more about their journey in the sport. Jared is a Level 1 Starter, Level 2 Starter’s Assistant and Level 1 Endurance Official and Vina is Level 3 Track Judge and Level 2 Field Judge. Jared and Vina spoke to us about their inspiration to becoming involved in the sport and why they decided to progress along the Officiating pathway.
