Calling all potential officials – your club needs you!

Dear Parents, Athletes and Coaches,

We need your HELP – please!

It is essential that we recruit additional volunteers and officials to allow our club to continue to provide fantastic opportunities for our athletes to compete. As you may be aware we are required to supply officials for all our league fixtures and we are keen to continue to run local meetings which cannot go ahead without help from volunteers.

PLEASE consider taking a one-day course (no assessment) as a field judge, track judge, starter/starter’s assistant or timekeeper. The minimum age to take the course is 14 (with a view to becoming a qualified official at the age of 16). We would not expect you to help regularly throughout the season but would greatly appreciate any help you could offer.

Bristol and West AC will fund the course and if we have enough interest we may even be able to host a course locally.

Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions or queries on officials@bristolandwestac.org . I’d be grateful if you could let me know if you are interested as soon as possible to see if it is viable to apply to host a course locally.

Many thanks for your support and please help me to encourage others!

Bev Barrett

B&W Officials’ Secretary
