ABOUT TECHNICAL OFFICIALS

   

BENEFITS OF BECOMING A TECHNICAL OFFICIAL 

Local technical officials (LTO) operate on site at triathlons throughout Queensland and nationally to ensure events are run safely and fairly for all competitors. Technical officials work on the field of play to enforce the Triathlon Australia Race Competition Rules.

Through volunteering as an official, you'll gain a unique insight into how triathlons and major sporting events are managed, and learn valuable transferable skills. All training is offered free of charge and you'll also receive a financial contribution each time you volunteer to cover your costs. 

 
  •  You'll build and hone strong verbal and interpersonal communication skills
  • Gain confidence in decision making, and learn to assess risk in a practical sense, particularly as it relates to the operation of sporting events. 
  • Your accreditation as a triathlon technical official is recognised by the Australian Sports Commission. 
  • If you compete in triathlons, you can get a discount on your competing membership to Triathlon Australia.
