FREE Introductory Officials Workshop Available by BC Athletics, June 26th.

We are offering an introductory officials workshop on June 26, 2-330 at Swangard Stadium, as part of the Jerome Training Week. Any club volunteers interested in participating are highly encouraged to attend this FREE event! Participants will be given interesting assignments on officials teams during the competition later in the day. The BCA Officials Committee has made "succession planning” a priority for this year. We are offering these workshops to help member Clubs develop officiating resources to support athletes in competition in future years.

Registration and clinic information is on the BCA Officials web page:

This workshop is required for advancement to Level 1 in the National Officials Certification program. Instructors will present organizational information, which prepares novice officials for successful participation and future upgrading. Basic rules and best practices for individual track and field events are presented on site. Handouts will be provided, but participants should come prepared to take notes. Dress for comfort and light OUTDOOR activity. Participants meet at the Southwest Gate of Swangard Stadium at 1:45pm.
