PARENTS NOTE: As with all athletics events the Leagues are run by volunteers, each club is expected to provide volunteers to officiate. The coaches are committed to preparing the athletes for their events and not always available to officiate, we therefore look to you, the parents to fill this gap. The Dublin Athletics Board take a dim view of clubs that don’t provide sufficient officials and can exclude our athletes from the competition. For this reason, we expect you make yourself available to officiate on the day. No need to worry about experience, as senior officials will be there to guide you.
