Tri Officials Course - Level 1

TriNL will be holding a training session for anyone interested in being certified as a Level 1 triathlon official in the province. There is no fee to take the course.

The course is slated for Sunday, January 28, 10 AM - 1 PM.

The course will be offered in two locations:
 - St. John's: SportNL Office, 1296A Kenmount Road
 - Corner Brook (details to follow).

The course will also be available via Skype conference call for those unable to attend the in-person sessions.

TriNL will be developing the use of officials at sanctioned events over the next few years.  As well, Level 1 officials certification is required for all prospective coaches in both the community and competitive streams. It is also recommended for race directors and hosts of triathlon events, so they are familiar with triathlon rules and how the rules will affect the conduct of the competitions.
