Pat & Tony need your help!
With an even larger competition load this year our officials are going to be stretched to their limits. We are desperate for more people to help them out and share the load.
So we are excited to see there are Two exciting officials’ courses are taking place at YOSC on 15th March.
Level 1 Track Official: 10am – 1.30pm
This 2 hour 30 minutes, practical course will introduce candidates to the key roles, responsibilities and duties of a Track Official, including recording and reporting infringements, knowledge of track markings and judging lane lines and the finish.
Level 1 Timekeepers Official: 1pm-4pm
This 3 hour, practical course will introduce candidates to the key roles and responsibilities of a Timekeeper, including appropriate equipment to use, and how to correctly record and report race times.
This is a great opportunity to gain a qualification on home turf!
The club will be happy to help with the cost of the course for anyone who is interested. Please contact Matt Viner (firstname.lastname@example.org) for more info.
