21 February 2017 

On Sunday 2nd April 2017, British Athletics are holding the 14th Annual Officials Conference at Chesford Grange, Kenilworth. The theme for this year’s conference is ‘Broaden Your Horizons’.

The usual attendance is around 250 officials of all levels and experience coming together from around the country to discuss relevant topics and issues in officiating, as well as offering valuable networking opportunities and sharing of best practice. During the day we will be holding a number of workshops from Conflict Management to EDM and Disability Track & Field. 

We have taken on board the feedback from previous years to ensure that the workshops reflect what officials would like to see delivered. Please view this document for descriptions of the various workshops we will be covering. You will need to select 5 workshop options in order of preference.

Young Officials (25 years and under) – We would particularly like to welcome young officials to register for the conference this year. There will be a separate registration area for young officials at conference so that you can meet up with other young like-minded people. We will also be providing hooded sweatshirts for young officials so please ensure that you select your size in the online form.
