Officials For School Carnivals

Queensland Athletics provides officials for School Carnivals, both Track & Field and Cross Country, through the Brisbane Athletics Officials Club.

The Brisbane Athletics Officials Club, a Queensland Athletics affiliated club, offers the services of its accredited officials for School Carnival in the South-East region of the State. The club is the main point of contact for requests and allocation of officials, with Queensland Athletics providing assistance with administration and technical support. This facilitates a co-operative relationship with venue management to ensure that all of your needs are addressed.

All officials appointed to School Carnivals are duly accredited Athletics Australia officials. Our officials are experienced and have good people skills to work in conjunction with your teacher officials and student helpers.  Appointed officials are also all current Blue Card Holders.

There are several options which you may consider for your events:

  • Engagement of Qualified Officials
  • Hire Photo Finish Equipment & Operators
  • Administration & Results Service
  • Hire Equipment

Equipment Supply Service - We offer an Equipment Supply service to take the hassle out of ensuring you have the correct numbers and weights of implements, measuring tapes, spikes and other equipment plus the ability to verify athletes’ personal equipment and importantly guarantee that the equipment is there at the start of the carnival and not arriving on a late bus. This service includes the Equipment Judge.  Equipment such as Rakes, Brooms, Hurdles, High Jump mats and tents are supplied by the venue.

Provision of adequate numbers of capable school officials: Some School Carnivals have been relying solely on a few accredited officials, assisted by students, to run field events at their carnivals. In a number of cases these students have been physically incapable of carrying out some of the tasks involved such as raking pits and returning implements. In addition to this some students disappear after the first event of the day and delays are experienced while replacements are found.  If it is intended that teachers will not be used as assistants on field events then we require that student helpers be reliable and physically capable of performing the tasks involved. Alternatively you may choose to engage additional accredited officials (subject to availability).

In addition while all of our officials hold a current blue card it is not their role or responsibility to supervise students or maintain discipline and we request that sufficient teachers be provided on the field of play in order to perform this role.

The Brisbane Athletics Officials Club looks forward to working with you to ensure that your carnival is successful and enjoyable.
