Officials - South West
Officials are vital to competition in athletics. We have many dedicated officials across the South West and we are working on developing this region to ensure both existing and future officials are well supported.
The SW region works closely with the South of England Athletics Officials' Association (SEAOA) and the Midlands Athletics Officials' Association (MAFEO) promoting and encouraging participation in officiating including workshops, social evenings, forums, development days and conferences.
- For officiating opportunities with Midland Counties contact Maureen Bullen at MBullen@mcaa.org.uk or on 0121 308 2257.
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.

DE24 0HF Tel: 01332 753933). It would be useful to copy in your COfSec - County Officials' Secretary (listed below).
