Officiating at Little Athletics (LA) is very simple and indeed even more rewarding. If you’re new to LA you might feel a little unsure of what you can do to assist, the information provided below will help you get a better understanding of how each event works and make you feel more comfortable.
At the basic level what we mean by “officiating” is really just helping out. LA is an activity where you can learn the event rules as you go along, and in a short space of time you’ll find that you know more than enough to run the event. If you’re ever in doubt help is always close at hand, contact a higher accredited official listed below or a Centre committee member.
Please note the Official’s qualification process has recently been updated. The information below is now out of date and we will be amending this shortly. Some information remains relevant and is made available for historical purposes.
Level 1 Official
Level 2 Official
Moving on from the Level 1 Officials qualifications, you may decide on being accredited as a Level 2 Official. This is a quite simple process and involves reading an information booklet, and completing a multi-choice answer sheet. There is no cost involved and as much time can be taken as desired. Simply email or post the completed answer sheet to LAV.
For any person that is particularly keen, you can read the full Competition Rules and Regulations as adhered to by the LAV at State & most Regional Championships.
