Our Officials Coordinator is Colin Jacks.

Getting Started

We provide opportunities for technical officials of all levels to officiate at club fixtures, including both track and field and endurance. We welcome both experienced officials and also those with little or no experience. The club has a number of very experienced technical officials, who are only too willing to assist newcomers to officiating. Newcomers can gain experience by assisting existing officials and then go on to become qualified by attending courses.

For any questions about the clubs officials you can contact the head official – Colin Jacks HERE
