Where do you spend the winter months training?
Training for New USAT Officials at Lifetime Fitness Minneapolis
If you have good judgment and a sense of fair play, consider joining the USAT Officials program. USAT officials help bring fairness to races by enforcing the Competitive Rules of USA Triathlon. A clinic/race practicum will be held in conjunction with the Lifetime Fitness Tri in Minneapolis on July 12-13. Prospective officials attend an afternoon classroom session on Friday, July 12 , then help officiate on race day, Saturday, July 13. A take-home exam must be completed prior to the clinic.
Upon successful completion of the clinic, new officials then work two additional races as an apprentice. Upon satisfactory completion of these requirements, officials may be assigned to work races throughout the Midwest.
