Fresh off the USATF Convention rollercoaster with information for our association officials.
All re-certifications should have been completed by now, but if you still need assistance a final clinic has been setup.
There will be a officials clinic on Wednesday, May 10, 2017, 5:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. at Simpson Recreation Center – 1010 Arrott Street, Philadelphia, Pa 19124. If you need assistance with Pa clearance process, as well as Safe Sport this will be the final clinic to receive one on one assistance.
For the new Olympiad in order to be certified officials must be a USATF member in good standing, Safe Sport Training completed recert payment, and last but not least background screening. Your background screening for USATF and Pennsylvania must be completed and reported to USATF before the NOC will release your certification.
All officials certified in 2016 do not have to pay for re-certification but you are still required to fulfill the above requirements to be certified.
Once certified (and after the logistics including website inquiry location are worked out) every official will receive (one time only) one blue USATF Officials shirt to be worn as part of your national uniform.
