Officials Courses at Taunton and Cheltenham

16 Feb

A Level 1 Officials’ course will be held on Sunday 18 March 2018 at Castle Sports Centre, Wellington Road, Taunton or alternatively on Saturday 14 April 2018 at the Prince of Wales Stadium, Cheltenham.

Any potential volunteer can choose to undertake either the timekeeping, track, field or starters’ assistant course and all will attend the health and safety module. There is funding available for the course. There’s no assessment and following the course, provided the volunteer is 16 or over, they can become a Licensed Level 1 Official by attending a minimum of four athletics meetings and recording and submitting this evidence to England Athletics and undertaking an enhanced DBS check.

If you are interested please contact the Club’s Officials Secretary, Bev Barrett, by e-mail ( and she can give you further details. The club wouldn’t expect volunteers to help regularly just a few times per season would be a fantastic help.
