Get Involved in Officiating – We need you !
Upcoming Officials Courses
To get started with Officiating all you have to do is send an email to our Regional Officials Educator- Paul Craddock firstname.lastname@example.org
All courses have been moved online due to the Covid Lockdown in Auckland.
Levels C & B
Level C is the initial level for recognition by Athletics New Zealand. It is suitable for people who help at club nights, ribbon days and inter-club competitions. Level B is for people who have done the initial level and gained further practical experience (15 days above club-night activity) and can therefore accept more responsibility.
Level A courses are for people with comprehensive experience and likely to be asked to officiate in key positions at major meetings such as league and championships. In the 2 years after qualifying at Level B a further 15 days officiating experience is needed including duty at an Athletics New Zealand Championships.
ANZOES is divided up into specific areas so people may qualify in Jumps, Throws, Track, Walks, Para, Course Measurement and Non-Stadia (Cross Country/ Road Races).
