Please take advantage of these courses. We have a fantastic race season ahead and we need a new pool of officials to be able to offer race venues and organizing committees. If each club identifies 5 new Level 1 officials and at least 2 new Level 2 officials, we will grow our officials stream on an annual basis.

In order to take the Level 2, a volunteer will have to complete the online Level 1 first. The courses are free. 

Please register here for both, Level 1 and Level 2 courses:
