Are you interested in supporting the club as a volunteer? We have a range of positions available.

We are very pleased that England Athletics will be hosting officials courses at Winchester in November. As we are extremely short of officials, we would encourage as many of you to attend a course as possible and make the most of having a course so close to home. If we increase our pool of officials sufficiently, the burden and level of commitment would be much lower than it currently is for the small number of officials we do have, making the experience much more enjoyable for everyone. It is possible for timekeepers / track judges to work in shifts so you can officiate for a morning or afternoon, leaving you free to watch your child compete for the rest of the day. Field officials cover a limited number of events in a day and have breaks in between so you should still have the opportunity to watch your child compete.

The duration of the course is one day and WADAC will refund the course fee after 12 months if you are able to officiate at 5 or more matches in the twelve months following the course. The course fee is £30. Most matches are on a Saturday or Sunday during the spring and summer months.

The courses are as follows:

12th November – Timekeeping

12th November – Starter

26th November – Field

26th November – Track

If you are interested, please email Kathryn Miles (coaching@wadac.org.uk) for more details.
