Please consider signing up for the officials course on the 4th and 11th November. We have had a very poor take-up so far and would very much like to expand our pool of officials.

The deadline for registering is the 19th October for Track and Field and the 26th November for Starter’s Assistant and Timekeeping. Details below:

We are very pleased that England Athletics will again be hosting officials courses at Winchester in November. As we are very 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. The club needs to provide enough officials for our league matches which we have not been able to do at various matches in the past – we also score points for officials in some leagues. 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. Most matches are on a Saturday or Sunday during the spring and summer months.

The duration of the course is one day and WADAC will refund the course fee of £30. Officials helping out at 5 or more league matches may be considered by the committee for free membership the following year.

The courses are as follows:

4November – Field

4November – Track

11 November – Starter’s Assistant

11 November – Timekeeper

Further details of the courses can be found here: https://www.englandathletics.org/courses-and-bookings#. Course Type is Officials – Level 1 and Region is South East. Please email me for further details or if you would like to attend one of the courses.

Many thanks
