OFFICIAls education


As athletics events require a very large workforce, we are always looking for more volunteers and officials. Becoming an official is a lot easier then it may seem with the level 1 course entirely online. Athletics NSW would like to encourage anyone with an interest in athletics to volunteer at one of our events to get a taste for officiating. Anyone can volunteer, and our All-comers and Treloar Shield meets are the perfect opportunity to experience officiating. No passed experience is necessary. If you would like more information, please email

The Australian Athletics Officials’ Education Scheme (AAOES) is a joint initiative of Athletics Australia and Jetstar Little Athletics Australia, providing a seamless and transparent education pathway for Australian Athletics Officials.

The scheme is endorsed by the Australian Sports Commission and then follows best industry practice, with online learning coupled with face-to-face delivery. The aim of the AAOES is to ensure an effective and efficient education framework is provided to guarantee Australian Athletics Officials remain world leaders in event delivery at all levels of athletic competition.

The new officials accreditation scheme is aimed at being widely accessible and encourages a greater number of people to be provided with the opportunity to acquire the knowledge to conduct athletics competitions at all levels.

Officials will notice that the names of the levels have changed and in the future will be known as follows:

AAOES Level 1 = Old grading – D
AAOES Level 2 = Old grading – C&B
AAOES Level 3 = Old grading – A


Athletics NSW are always looking for volunteers to assist at their events. ANSW recently signed a declaration with Sport NSW demonstrating their commitment to valuing and respecting volunteers. ANSW strongly acknowledges that volunteers are vital to the running of any event.  For the volunteer, becoming involved in events is an opportunity to learn new skills and gain experience whilst enjoying the atmosphere at Sydney Olympic Park. Each volunteer will receive a shirt and ANSW are also more than happy to provide proof of volunteering certificates.

If you are interested in becoming involved, please email Ashleigh Crook -
