Opportunities for Technical Officials

Posted by Administrator on Fri 1 November 2019

Best Offer EVER for Officials to find out about Officiating

Officials Taster sessions provided by England Athletics

 A message from Chris Mallender (EA Club Support Manager for Leicestershire): Applications are now open for Officials Taster Sessions at the EA Champs next year. This is a fantastic opportunity and we had really positive feedback from the sessions last year with over half of those attending going on to do a level 1 qualification, so for clubs who are trying to encourage people to get involved in officiating this will be a really positive experience for them. 

  This year we are also providing opportunities for people to attend Endurance events: The National Cross Country Championships in Nottingham and the National Road Relays in Sutton Park. These are 2 highly regarded events in the endurance calendar and again will provide a really positive first experience for people looking to get involved in endurance officiating.

  Who is it aimed at?  Anyone aged 16+ who would like to get involved in officiating.

  How can you apply?

  Additional Benefits

  • Everyone who attends will receive a free place on a level 1 course and given Officials kit on the day.

  • Travel expenses will be covered (up to a maximum amount)

  • Opportunity to be paired with a mentor after the event.

    These events are relatively local - Birmingham, Nottingham and (for indoor T&F) Sheffield.
