USAT Officials: What we do!

USA Triathlon Certified Rules Officials: What We Do.

USA Triathlon Certified Rules Officials strive to ensure fairness for all competitors in USA Triathlon sanctioned multi-sport events by consistently applying the USA Triathlon competitive rules.

USA Triathlon Certification and Recertification Clinics: How to Become an Official.

If you’d like to be a USA Triathlon Certified Rules Official, you must take one of the many certification clinics held by the Florida Regional Officials’ Coordinator. Before the clinic, you are required to complete a short do-it- at-home “open-book” exam to help you become familiar with the USA Triathlon competitive rules. A three-hour clinic consisting of classroom lecture and discussion is held the day before a race to help you become familiar with the mission of the USA Triathlon Certified Rules Officials’ program and the competitive rules. Afterward you will be issued a USA Triathlon officials’ uniform. The next day, you actually officiate at an event under supervision of the head referee.

There is no charge to attend a USA Triathlon Certified Rules Officials’ clinic and only a few requirements. To become a USA Triathlon Certified Rules Official, you must be a member of USA Triathlon, be in good physical condition, weigh less than 200 pounds and be capable of riding for hours at a time as a passenger on a motorcycle.

USA Triathlon Certified Rules Officials operate under a category system. During the clinic and your first race you will be a Category 5 official. Afterward you will be classified as a Category 4 official. You then have twelve months to become certified as a Category 3 crawfordofficial. In order to do that, you must officiate at two USA Triathlon sanctioned races under the supervision of the head referee.

Clinics have a limited number of openings. If you’d like to become an official, you should contact the Regional Officials’ Coordinator at FloridaROC@msn.com as early as possible to reserve your space.
