Calling for Competition Officials
Every LAQ Carnival and Championships owes much of its success to the volunteer Officials. Prior to the commencement of each season, the Officials Committee calls for applications for all levels of Officials including Key, Chief, Judges, General, and Trainee Officials for track, field and admin areas. Applications are normally required by early September; however, they are accepted throughout the season.
To submit an Expression of Interest (EOI) to officiate at any, or all of the LAQ Competitions, one of the following application links should be accessed, completed and submitted as soon as possible. The 2020/2021 season links will be available shortly.

All Officials applying must provide details of their Blue Card status. Due to LAQ and Government rules & regulations Officials are required to be suitability cardholders, if officiating at any LAQ Competitions. To view the LAQ Blue Card policy, please use this link. If you have not yet applied for a blue card, please visit the Blue Card Services website for further information and application forms.
All Officials are required to comply with the Code of Conduct and the COVID Advice at any LAQ competition. Check-in prior to the start of the event is essential. Officials should also be aware of the programmed event start time, be prepared and at the event at least 15 minutes prior to these times.
LAQ Competition Officials’ Appointments
see link(s) below for current appointment lists
Appointments to LAQ competitions will be competency based, subject to specific criteria and will be assessed on an individual basis. Appointments of the LAQ Competition Officials will be posted on this webpage and in the TEAM APP Officials page as they become available. Individual notices will not be issued, unless the application is not accepted. Any Official that has applied and not on the appropriate appointment list(s) is encouraged to contact Karen Lunt through the LAQ Office.
LAQ strives to appoint accredited Officials in Key and Chief roles. Appointments are based on the applications received by the required date; however, any interested persons may register their interest to officiate at an LAQ competition by submitting an application at any time. Centre members and parents attending LAQ competitions are encouraged to assist at the events if calls for General Officials are made. General Officials only require a willingness to help. Appointments may be changed at the discretion of the Officials Committee.
