Officiating & Coaching

We are always on the lookout for parents to become qualified as either a Coach, Official or both!


If you are interested in either of these fields or both then please consider the following:

BECOME A COACH – To obtain the basic qualifications you can complete the Introduction to Coaching Course or the Level 1 Community Athletics Coach Course. GGLAC is able to assist with the cost for these courses and we ask you to read our Coaching Policy and speak to one of our coaches or a committee member for more information.

BECOME AN OFFICIAL – In order to record and recognise Centre Records at a local level you must be Level 1 Qualified in that event. To complete the theory component of all events is FREE and just requires your time to complete the relative courses. None of these course are hard to complete, they also allow you to jump back through the course to review the information. Here are the basics to get you started.

Level 0 of the course is not compulsory, it is strongly recommended you complete the modules.

Level 1 – There is a module for each event, you can complete just 1 in a particular event, a few, or all the modules. For example, if you only complete the Long Jump module, you will only be qualified to judge Long Jump and no other events. We recommend you complete all the events in Little Athletics to have a full understanding of them all. All modules can be completed in your own time and we ask that you email us your Certificate of Completion for each module so we know who is qualified.

Again speak to any of our Committee if you are interest or wish to know more.
