Call for Timekeepers – Your Club Needs You!
Central has a duty to provide officials (timekeepers, starters, T&F officials etc) for the competitions we take part in. We also need them to hold our own intra-club events like the pre-season and club champs meets. Just now we are very short of trained and qualified officials.
The club has paid for a Scottish Athletics Tutor to come along to Stirling and train a group of us. So, if you can spare an evening to attend the course and are willing to help out at club events and league matches in the future, please contact to book your free place.
