As with many other amateur sports, athletics relies on volunteers to run competitions and we always need volunteers in Dorset to help with both training and competitions.. Parents are often drafted in to rake a sandpit or hold a tape measure, however, many people are unaware that we do actually score points for bringing qualified officials to events! There are several levels of qualifications from level 1 upwards. We will keep you informed of courses running locally if you are interested in volunteering for us.

If you are a parent or grandparent who is often at athletics competitions, please think seriously about becoming an Official and volunteering with us in Poole, Bournemouth, Wimborne, Weymouth and Dorchester. The clubs and the network will support you through the process of becoming qualified.
