HAVE YOU CONSIDERED BECOMING A TECHNICAL OFFICIAL?
If you are a supporter of triathlon, wish to give back to the sport you love or want something to do while not competing, why not become a Triathlon Australia Technical Official?
Technical Officials are responsible for ensuring that an event is run in accordance with the Triathlon Australia (TA) Race Competition Rules (RCR). Our aim as officials is to:
- Create an atmosphere of sportsmanship, equality and fair play;
- Optimise safety and protection;
- Penalise competitors who seek to gain an unfair advantage; and
- Emphasise ingenuity and skill without unduly limiting the competitor's freedom of action.
BENEFITS OF BECOMING A TECHNICAL OFFICIAL
- - Free education and training
- - Free non-competitive membership discounts off competitive membership (if officiated at 3 events in the season prior)
- - Fee for service payment –please contact your State or Territory Association for details
DID YOU KNOW THAT YOU CAN NOW COMPLETE THE LEVEL 1 COURSE ONLINE?
