Our sport could not function without the support of thousands of volunteer officials, who share their time and expertise each week. To learn more about becoming an official, click here. If you’re qualified and want to progress to the next level, you’ll find all the details here.
All officials should keep their contact details updated on the MyAthletics portal. You are encouraged to keep your Record of Experience updated using the online RoE on the portal. Each year’s details should be exported on 30 Sept and sent to your County Officials’ Secretary (COFSEC) and to the NTROG Secretary. For contact details of your COFSEC, click here.
Officials’ appointments to Northern Athletics championships are based on recommendations from the Northern Tri-Regional Officials’ Group (NTROG). They balance the need for a strong team of experienced officials at each event with the desire to provide opportunities for others to develop. Listed below are downloads for Endurance and Track & Field appointments. These files are regularly updated, so please check which version you have downloaded and what date it was updated/amended.
If you need to withdraw from an appointment, please contact Northern Athletics as soon as possible, so a reserve can be appointed.
