Jim Kerrigan, Lancashire Athletic Association Officials’ Secretary is hoping to hold a Level 2 Field Officials’ course at Blackburn’s Track on Friday, 31 October. If the response is good and it goes ahead the Health and Safety part of the course would have to start at 5.00 p.m and the Field Level 2 at about 7.15 p.m. to finish at 9 p.m. The starting time for the H&S section maybe too early – we could ask to see if this part could be taken separately. Jim has said that going straight on to the Level 2, bypassing the Level, 1 is fine and he has heard that the Level 1 may be abolished in the future. He is also hoping to organize Level 2 Track Judging, Timekeeping and Starter/Marksman courses in the New Year.
Over the past 2 years more parents have become involved in
officiating at league meetings and at our Open meeting but we do need ‘graded’ officials for these meetings and we need our Grade 1 officials to move up to Level 2. If anyone is interested please can they let Chris, Noel or Lynn know as soon as possible.
