On the weekend of July 26/27 2014 Queensland Athletics and Little Athletics Queensland are running an Officials Training weekend. The weekend will comprise both Practical workshops and C Grade Theory Seminars and Exams.
The Practical component of the weekend will be on the Saturday starting at 9:00am and finishing around 3:00pm. The day will consist of 3 one hour sessions which will cover Track, Jumps and Throws with the objective being the correct setup and running of the event, for Jumps this will include both horizontal and vertical jumps, the throws will include all throws, the track area will include both the start area and general track. Each area will be covered in each one hour session so that people are able to attend all 3 or duplicate an area if they wish to do so. These sessions will be followed by a lunch break and then starting from 1:00pm there will be an EDM training session that will cover both Throws and Jumps and include both the correct setup of the EDM and the correct use of the EDM through an event.
The Theory sessions will start on Saturday afternoon with a General Principals Seminar, this seminar will cover the Rules which apply to all areas of officiating and will start at the conclusion of the EDM training session at 3:00pm. The second of the Theory sessions will be on Sunday 27th starting at 9:00am with seminars in Track, Jumps, Throw and Technical (Equipment), this will be followed by a short lunch break leading into the third and final Theory session of the weekend which will comprise Seminars in Track, Jumps, Throws and Walks.
