On completion of the course, all over 16’s will need to complete a CRB check to be able to officiate at galas and arrangements will be made to ensure they can be timekeepers at our club championships in September. For those who wish to progress and become a Level 2 Judge, courses are held throughout the year.
Please remember, without officials the galas wouldn’t take place, so please volunteer!
