I have been coaching and officiating since 2010.
I also also a Level 3 Track Judge and Level 3 Field Judge.
I started my journey into athletics by answering an announcement asking for a volunteer to officiate at a competition I was attending with my son. From there I was co-opted into coaching beginning as an athletics leader, then assistant coach before finally doing the full coaches course.
I absolutely love athletics especially officiating as you can see the result of all your hard work at coaching being put to practice by the athletes at different levels of competitions.
Both of my children are athletes so I always feel that as some coach is working hard to make my children successful athletes, the least I can do is give back by helping other athletes also.
