Becoming a Technical Official
Without volunteers most of the Triathlon events around the country and internationally would not take place. Being a Technical Official is a great way to get involved with the sport.
You don’t need to be a triathlete!
Learn how to be a Technical Official - what's required, responsibilities, rule overview, development and more. Get the knowledge and apply it immediately. A great way to build confidence and learn from experienced Technical Officials.
The primary role of the Technical Officials (TO’s) is to ensure the safe and fair conduct of triathlon events. TO’s need to be good communicators, be assertive (not aggressive) and work effectively as a team member.
When you start out as a TO you will generally be assigned to straightforward duties not requiring onerous interpretation or knowledge of the rules. As your confidence and knowledge develop you may move on to more involved roles.
We give you training in what is required of a TO and the Race Competition Rules. You’ll attend a practical session under the guidance of a mentor and when you’re ready (after a couple of events) you’ll be assessed on your competency as an Official.
Being a TO is a great way to be involved in or give back to the sport. TO’s can officiate across Victoria, interstate and potentially overseas. Who knows you could end up at the Olympics!
TO’s are in the middle of the action and enjoy the camaraderie of the Technical team.
There is no charge to undertake the Technical Officials course. TO’s are entitled to a minimum per diem allowance of $60.00 per event (even on your practical training morning).
TriVic runs TO courses regularly. For more information or to book your place, please e-mail Sue at Tri Vic – email@example.com
