The Officials Committee of USATF Oregon recruits, trains, and certifies people to officiate track and field and associated sports (Cross Country, Road Racing, Race Walk) at all levels.
Officials play an important role in making thousands of events run smoothly. From working national championships, to officiating high school track meets, officials are essential for maintaining the highest levels of integrity at all levels of competition.
Our members work at meets throughout the State of Oregon, and North America. A number of our officials are chosen each year to work meets of national importance, especially USATF and NCAA Championships, and occasionally meets outside the U.S. We seek individuals who care about these sports and are dedicated to ensuring that track and meets are run safely and fairly.
We would love to have you join our officiating team, go here for information: New Official.
Recertification requirements for the current Olympaid can be found here.
