Officials Course, March 18th. URGENT

(February 06, 2018)

This is an important  announcement to inform all Sussex athletics clubs that there will be an Officials Course at the Lewes track on Sunday 18 March 2018.  This will cover all four track and field disciplines of starter/marksman, timekeeper, track judge and field judge commencing at 10.00 am and continuing until about 3.30 pm.

It is of the UTMOST IMPORTANCE that all clubs do all they possibly can to increase the number of qualified officials we have here in Sussex.  Every track club in the county needs to increase the number of qualified officials among its members so please do not ignore this message but advertise it vigorously within your club, encourage your members to register and do all you can to ensure a full house at the course.

If anyone wants to discuss the requirements they are welcome to call me on 01444 458953
