Without Officials the sport of Athletics would cease to exist and all Officials are volunteers. Every competition needs quite a few Officials. Hopefully this section will give you an insight into what an Official does and why. There are courses that can be taken to become qualified, some of our Club Officials worked at London 2012 and Glasgow 2014. If you are a student taking a BTEC in Sports then you may find that having an Officials License is a great thing to be able to add to your cv, it can actually count towards your course.

If you want details of Officials Courses please contact us, remember a qualified Official who regularly helps out for the club could earn a free membership (EA fee not included) in the following year for themselves or their child.

If you wish to attend these courses then the Club will pay the fee providing that you officiate at club meetings, plus you’ll get a free Club Membership in the following year.
