Technical Officials

Technical Officials (TOs) play a key role in the safe running of events nationwide. TOs come from all sporting backgrounds. The TO’s role is primarily to make sure the event is fun, safe and fair. The club has a duty to provide TO’s to races, in the same way, we will need TO’s for our own races. Races can’t be run without them. TI runs regular courses for Technical Officials.
