The San Diego Track & Field Officials Association will have its annual meeting at 9am on Saturday, January 16, via Zoom. All currently certified officials, previoiusly certified officials, and any person with an interest in becoming a certified official are invited to attend. Please email the Certification Chair for the Zoom meeting specifics.
All certified officials must be recertified every 4 years. For information on the process for certification and recertification, go to USATF's Officials Certification Process and Rules Reviews. You must be a member of USATF to be fully certified. The first step in the process is to establish an account at USATF Connect. More information and links can be found on the National Officials Committee Dashboard or USATF Officials.
The local uniform consists of white shirt and khaki slacks, shorts or skirts. Morgan's Monograms is the local source for officials' shirts. Take your own white shirt (or purchase at Morgan's) for the embroidered USATF Certified Officials logo and your name (optional).
