Officials Training Clinics announced for 2020 Olympiad certification

As the 2016 Olympiad is now behind us and we have entered the 2020 Olympiad, USATF Virginia is pleased to announce the schedule for the apprentice and advanced level training Official’s clinics that will be offered in the coming weeks.  Attendance at one of the clinics is one of the requirements for individuals to obtain their USATF Officials certification for the 2020 Olympiad. 
The first hour of each of the clinics (except January 15 in Charlottesville) will be dedicated toward apprentice (entry) level officials.  We are hopeful to attract many new faces to the Officials ranks this year to help in our mission of offering our athletes competitions that are fair, efficient, and well run.
We would first like to thank all of the certified officials that provided such valuable services to the sport over the past four years.  Without our dedicated officials the events that we offer for our athletes would not happen.  Please take the time to read this wonderful “Thank You” from a USATF club coach.  It captures the essence of just how important the officials are to the sport.  We hope this will give you some extra motivation to either become an official for the first time or, for the current officials, to re-commit for the next four years.

The dates and locations of the clinics are:
