Make it “official” and get certified!

Have you ever thought about becoming a USAT Competitive Rules official? Officiating at triathlons is a fantastic way to stay involved in the sport. And now is your chance: the Florida Region is looking for USA Triathlon members that would like to become certified officials.

What does it take? To become a USA Triathlon official, you must be a member of USA Triathlon prior to coming to the clinic, pass a background check, take the USOC SafeSport webinar, 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.

You also need to attend a 4-hour certification clinic held in conjunction with a USA Triathlon sanctioned triathlon or duathlon. During the clinic you will become familiar with the philosophies and mission of the USA Triathlon officials’ program and the competitive rules. The next day, following the certification clinic, you actually work at the event as an official under the supervision of the head referee.
