Track and Field officials help to ensure fair and safe competitive opportunities for athletes.
USATF requires training and certification for officials. This process promotes a serious and professional approach to officiating, and ensures an official's commitment to excellence.
As an official gains experience, exposure to correct officiating practices, and additional training, USATF recognizes this skill development through progressive levels of certification, which includes Association to National to Master.
A full listing of opportunities for officials at events across the United States is available at http://www.usatf.org/calendars/officialsNeeded.asp.
USA Track and Field also publishes guidelines and procedures, application forms and more on its website. Please click here to visit the site.
