Officials Guide Rulebook

Little Athletics SA Officials Guide Rulebook (revised August 2023)

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.


Officials Handy Hints

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
