Becoming an official

At all our home matches we need volunteers, parents and friends to help officiate to cover all the events and enable the match to run successfully. Perhaps you would like to formalise helping out and become a qualified official.

  1. Choose your discipline:
    Track Judge
    Field Judge
    Starter/Starter’s Assistant
    Race Walking offical
    Assistant Official (14+)
    Endurance & Risk
    Event Adjudicator
  2. ​Attend a L1 course, including a Health & Safety module.
  3. Keep a log of 4 experiences. Our open meetings are the perfect opportunity to practice and gain experience! You can backdate experiences from before you attended the course.  
  4. Submit your log
  5. Your licence will then arrive in the post!
