DID YOU KNOW THAT SOME "VOLUNTEER JOBS" COUNT AS CREDITS TO BECOMING AN OFFICIAL? 

If you believe in fair play and enjoy seeing the athletes compete and try their best, or if you want to learn more about the rules of track and field, then this might be for you!

Being an Official is not a daunting task. BC Athletics has pathways that help streamline your certification towards becoming one. It's as easy as taking an online module (one session of less than an hour), and get credit for hands-on training while doing the volunteer jobs at the meets. 

Sample tasks are:

Track - watching athletes stay within their lanes, counting # of laps for distance events, marshalling athletes and ensuring each athlete is in the correct lane, watching athletes pass baton within exchange zone for relays, etc.

Field - calling out the order of athletes and recording results, marking where they or the implement lands, pulling the measuring tape, reading the measurement on the tape, and many more.

You can enter through two different pathways:

Pathway to Level 1 (if you are new to track and field)

https://www.bcathletics.org/Content/pathway-to-level-1-local-official/261/

What you need to do: Online module, then hands-on exposure to track, horizontal jump, vertical jump, throws. No fee. 

Pathway to Level 2 - Regional Official (if with previous experience in athletics ie coach, parent, teacher, athlete)

https://www.bcathletics.org/Content/pathway-to-level-2-regional-official/262/

Get your journey started today!
