Discipline groups

The main purpose of the discipline groups is to look after the interest of the officials within that specific discipline group. The roles and responsibilities of each group include: –

• The allocation of officials to all scottishathletics championships.
• Making recommendations for chiefs and referees to other athletic events eg, league matches, open graded meetings & Scottish Schools’ events if requested.
• Allocation of a mentor for new officials and current officials looking to move up the officiating pathway.
• Marking Level 2 questions for officials looking to upgrade.
• Arrange reports for officials looking to upgrade to Levels 3 & 4.
• Checking application forms for upgrading to Level 2 and above and sending to the officials development officer for processing.
• Creating standardised detail of good practice, to go in the officials’ toolkit to help with consistency.
• Discuss any discipline-specific concerns raised and take action.
