The manual is a guide for Officials on how to conduct the rules of all athletic events in South Australia. These rules apply to the conduct of all State Association Competitions/Championships, and at the competition meets of affiliated Little Athletics Centres and Clubs.
The Australian Athletics Officials Education Committee (a joint initiative of Athletics Australia and Little Athletics Australia), have developed a number of ‘handy’ hints, a document to assist officials undertaking their roles.
They are primarily aimed at novice officials, who would like a handy guide they can keep in their bag at athletics carnivals. Each handy hint has a brief outline of the following:
· Significant rules of the event
· Equipment required to conduct the event
· Officials required to conduct the event
· Risk management considerations
