RW Clinics for Race Walk Judges and Race Walk Officials

Posted by on Dec 29, 2020 in Coach, Officials, pausatf, Race Walking | 0 comments

The USATF Pacific Association is holding Zoom clinics to train new Race Walk Judges and Race Walk Officials.  We encourage attendance by current USATF officials who would like to add race walk judging to their ID cards, and by athletes, coaches, parents, and friends.  Race walking is an Olympic sport and part of the track and field events at USATF Youth meets, including the Junior Olympics and the qualifying meets held in the Pacific Association.  We also have a Race Walking Grand Prix in the Pacific Association, with distances ranging from 1500 meters to 20 kilometers.

There are two opportunities to take the “Introduction to Race Walk Judging” clinic:

  • Saturday, January 9, 2021, from 11:15 a.m. to 2:15 p.m.
  • Sunday, February 21, 2021, from 11:15 a.m. to 2:15 p.m.

To register for either of these free clinics, please go to

2021 Clinic Sign-Ups (google.com)   .

The syllabus for the clinic is available as a Word file at  https://wp.me/a5y0XD-f4I  or as a PDF at  https://wp.me/a5y0XD-f4K  .

The syllabus also contains the questions for the Rules Review that will be covered in the clinic.  We’ll be using the USATF 2020 Competition Rules, available at

https://www.usatf.org/governance/rule-books  .

For adults (ages 18 and older), in addition to taking training clinics, USATF has three basic requirements for officials, which can be found at

https://www.usatf.org/programs/officials/certification

or

https://www.usatf.org/programs/officials   .  These include (1) being a current member of USATF, (2) having a background check, and (3) taking SafeSport training.

For youth ages 14-17, USATF has initiated a Junior Officials Program.  Information about this new program can be found at

https://www.flipsnack.com/USATF/2020-junior-officials-program/full-view.html  .  You are welcome to register for the upcoming clinic.

Feel free to contact me if you have questions or would like a copy of the syllabus.

Thanks for your interest.
