About Pacific Association Officials

The Officials Committee of Pacific Association USATF recruits, trains, and certifies people to officiate track and field and associated sports (Cross Country, Road Racing, Mountain-Ultra-Train Racing, Race Walk) at all levels: Youth, High School, Juniors, Seniors, Masters, Community Colleges, NCAA, USATF, IAAF. Our Officials work at meets primarily throughout the Pacific Association region and often at meets of national and world importance—especially USATF,  NCAA, IAAF championships, and the Olympics.

  • We seek individuals who care about “athletics” and are dedicated to ensuring that track meets are run safely and fairly.
  • We run clinics each year to improve our skills and educate our members.
  • We make our roster available to meet directors within Pacific Association.
  • We advise our members of other meets they may wish to work in nearby associations and globally.
  • Our members receive our newsletter, Turns and Distances, several times a year.
