Officials - London

Officials - London

Officials are vital to competition in athletics. The organization and running of London region’s officials is a joint effort by the 4 counties surrounding London. 

In conjunction with their County Associations, Counties work closely with the South of England Athletics Officials' Association (SEAOA) promoting and encouraging the participation in officiating including workshops, social evenings, forums, development days and conferences.

Officials' courses

Your local England Athletics Education Coordinators manage and coordinate a comprehensive programme of Assistant Official and Level 1 courses. If there is demand, you can request a course to be held locally.  UK Athletics (UKA) deliver Level 4 and the Competition Management Award courses.

Record of Experience Forms, Reports and Upgrading

Your completed Official's Record of Experience (RoE) form (also known previously as the Duty Sheet or The Officials' Worksheet) is due on 30th September each year.  The form can be used to record officiating at competition (C), attendance at meetings (M), attendance at training in which you were the learner (L) and training for which you were the tutor (T), and it's much easier to fill it in as you go throughout the year.

In London, track and field RoE for Level 3 (previously 2c) officials goes to David Vidler, and endurance RoE should be put onto a separate form and sent to Nick Folwell In each case, It would be useful to copy in your COfSec - County Officials' Secretary (listed below).  Upgrading reports are reviewed by the Tri-Regions group which will consider upgradings and nominations for national meetings. 

The London representatives appointed by the Regional council to the Tri-Regional group are:

Field: Steve Marshall
Track: Gill Freeman
Timekeeping: Sharon Herbert
Starter/Marksman: Gerald Alterman
