An early New Year's resolution? Get more involved in athletics, and become an accredited official!

21 Dec 2018

One of the facts that will always be true in club athletics is that there are never enough officials.  But there are always plenty of people watching from the side lines, and admiring the hard work of the people who are making the event go smoothly, and enabling the athletes to put in the performances that will live long in the memory.

Of course, if more people stepped forward to help, rather than just watch, the workload would be spread, and the officials wouldn't have to work QUITE so hard.

So, here's another chance to sign up for the England Athletics Level 1 officiating courses - all run on 17th March - at Chelmsford Sports & Athletics Centre!  Whether you prefer Track, or Field, there's a course for you, and you don't even have to travel!

For full details, and a booking form, go to:

PLEASE sign up to help out in 2019.  Even if you just rake the pit, it all helps.  You'll have the guidance and support of some very appreciative people at the club - a free lunch, great camaraderie - and a real sense of satisfaction at the end of the day.

Oh - and don't forget - the club will reimburse you for the course fee!
