A track and field background is not required. While many of our officials are former athletes or coaches, many others are simply fans of track and field or participate out of a desire to officiate. Training will be provided for those without previous track and field experience and to ensure all officials are clear on the rules and safety requirements of the competition.
REQUIRED KNOWLEDGE AND ABILITIES:
All officials will be expected to support a schedule of meets throughout the spring sports season – the majority of meets will take place on Thursday afternoons, with the possibility of the occasional alternate day of the week based on scheduling.
