Officials Course

Published on Thursday, 03 August 2017 19:10

The Club is hosting an Assistant Officials course on 29th August 2017.The course is FREE for members and supporting members. It will run from 5.30-9pm and be tutored by Mark Stringer from Scottish Athletics.

This course is the first step on the ladder of becoming a qualified official, details of the award gained are below.

Having more qualified officials is critical to the Club being able to host and participate in athletics events. Without officials, we cannot participate in league meetings such as the YDL and FVL and events such as the Indoor League simply cannot happen. Currently we rely on a number of longstanding and dedicated individuals who have supported the Club for years - in many cases, long past the point where their children (or even grandchildren!) are still competing. For athletes to compete and record official times, personal bests and so on requires officials - it is not possible to overstate the importance of this to the Club and to the future development of our athletes, please bear this in mind in considering whether you can give up a few hours a year to make a real difference to the Club.

We already have a number of people who have registered an interest in the course (via Julie Fallon-McLeod) - if you would like to attend the course please contact our Club Together Officer, Laura Paige (via This email address is being protected from spambots.
