Congratulations to Ross McLean, (one of our Senior Endurance athletes) on completing his training as a UKA Starter’s Assistant and recently receiving his Level 1 Official’s license.
Ross not only attended training for his chosen discipline and general health and safety training, but he also undertook on the job training at various events before receiving this accreditation.
Motherwell AC will receive valuable league points as a result of his newly qualified status at events he attends, and we will be better able to comply with any requirements for volunteers at other events.
Well done and thank you Ross!
MAC currently has one other licensed Field Event Official and two timekeepers “in training”. Volunteer Officials play a very important role in our sport and without them many events just couldn’t take place.
It’s also a great way to get more involved in athletics and can often present opportunities to attend some exciting events all over the country.
If anyone is interested in volunteering, please speak to a coach or committee member.
