Officials

Swansea Harriers has a large team of very dedicated volunteer officials that help the club fulfill its commitments in all its league, cup and championship fixtures on and off track throughout the year. TBC is the clubs officials coordinator and is the main point of contact for any new volunteer officials and all our existing officials. TBC can be contacted via email on TBC or by phone on TBC

If you are willing and available to help at any of the clubs fixtures not only as a track judge, timekeeper or field judge but helping in the cafe for home fixtures or any administrative role, please contact TBC. Even if you are only to help at a handful of events a year this makes a huge difference to the to the club.

All officials must have an enhanced DBS check and have a valid British Athletics Officials License to officiate at the club. Licenses are valid for a 3 year period and the enhanced DBS check must be renewed to have the license validated for a further 3 years. Click here for details of how to apply for a DBS check. Once the form arrives officials must arrange to have it checked with one of the clubs DBS verifiers; Ian Griffiths tigriffiths@hotmail.co.uk 077 72 11 19 89 or Andrew Jenkins andrew.jenkins90@ntlworld.com 078 94 57 35 55 or Lynne Brier m.briers1@ntlworld.com

Having completed a course the prospective official will be required to complete a Logbook of their experiences whilst officiating at events as evidence of their officiating. Successful assessment of the log-book will lead to the appropriate UK Athletics Level 1 or 2 Officiating Award and an Officials License will be issued or amended, subject to the official being in receipt of an up to date UK Athletics Enhanced DBS disclosure.  Many Leagues penalize clubs for not providing a minimum number of qualified officials at their meetings. This is an opportunity to help your club meet these requirements.
