Starters Needed for Scottish Athletics

Scottish Athletics are running short of Officials to cover all the events that go on in Scotland.  One of the lowest groups is the Starter/ Starters Assistant.

Therefore Scottish Athletics are running a Come & Try Starting at the Age Group championships on the 20th and 21st of August. Interested people can come along between 11:30 & 2:30 and be shown the ropes from a UK Athletics qualified Starter.

Without the expertise of Officials athletics in Scotland would not exist.

Please see this poster for more information.
