Do something great – become an official and help run our events.

Officials are the backbone of athletics meets. They are an essential requirement that must be present to ensure health and safety and the validity of results. Each year, event managers struggle to get enough officials for their events. By training as an official with LUCA, you can help make sure we can operate our events to the highest professional standard.

LUCA helps to organise officials training throughout the year. But you don’t have to wait for one of our courses to get funding! See below for more information.
