​As you probably already know, England Athletics will be hosting officials courses at Winchester in November. We have had some interest in the courses but we still need lots more of you to sign up please as we need to increase the number of officials in the club significantly.

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:

12 November – Timekeeping

12 November – Starter

26 November – Field

26 November – Track

The deadline for registering for the timekeeper and starter courses is the 27 October and for the field and track courses the deadline is the 10 November. Please email me if you are interested in attending, indicating which of the above disciplines you would like to be trained in.

Many thanks

Kathryn Miles
