From The Chair – January
All club members are encouraged to read the January update from Paul Baxter: From The Chair – January 2018.
BECOME A QUALIFIED OFFICIAL – OUR ATHLETES NEED YOU!
As mentioned in last weeks “Message from the Chair” the new UKA Licence for Track and Field meetings rules places a much stronger onus on all Clubs to provide more qualified officials and this applies equally to Track and Field judging as well as Timekeeping.
To achieve Level 1 Official status and be able to assist at York Summer League, UKYDL and Northern League meetings it is a simple task of completing one of the courses at Leeds Becket University (Headingley Campus) on 24th March 2018; a day long event with a compulsory Health and Safety Course for all attendees in the morning and then your chosen discipline in the afternoon i.e. Track , Field or Timekeeping. Log onto the England Athletics website or follow this link here and you will find the Leeds information on page 14. Once you have registered (There is an upfront cost of £30 which will be reimbursed by the Club after three attendances as an official at one of the three events referred to above ) please drop me an email to confirm which you have chosen – firstname.lastname@example.org. Officiating is good fun and you can see the action close up!
Also in League matches you will gain valuable points for the Club but also enable the meeting to take place under UKA rules and for the athletes performances to be recognised on Power of 10 and hence count for ESAA or County / National qualification! Please do not hesitate to call me on 07970 844998 with any queries
