What do your Officials' Secretaries do?

In conjunction with the members of the Officials' sub-committee, we make Appointments for all the Hampshire Athletics and Hampshire Schools AA meetings and we will be publishing those on these pages. Please note they will be the initial Appointments and subject to change for various reasons.

In addition we arrange Courses for prospective new Officials - see Who Needs Officials? Once an Official has qualified they will send us their Annual Record of Experience and from this information we can look at promotion and arranging any reports that are subsequently required. Don't forget we need Officials at all club events so we are more than happy if you just want to support your Club and not progress up the ladder.

We liaise with British Athletics and England Athletics to support our Officials and also make recommendations to our Regional colleagues to assist those Officials who want to progress further.

We meet every six months with the County Officials' Secretaries in our Region to discuss any problems and also share best practices for the benefit of all.

Every year we publish a Directory of active Hampshire Officials which we circulate to these Officials and the Hampshire Clubs. Also every six months we produce a Hampshire Officials Newsletter which includes some great articles from our Officials on what has happened in the last six months.

We start the outdoor season off with our Annual 'Get Together' which includes a buffet and a Guest Speaker and normally sponsored by Sport Hampshire and Isle of Wight.
