Welcome Officials!

Athletics is supported by volunteer officials Australia wide. As a growing sport throughout Australia, competitions are only achievable through volunteer support. To enable the continued development of athletics in WA, a greater volunteer presence is needed. The opportunity to officiate at Athletics WA competitions will provide you with a broad and in-depth experience in all disciplines of the sport.
