The Florida Region is looking for USA Triathlon members that would like to become certified as referees. Officiating at triathlons is a fantastic way to be involved in the sport.
“What’s it take,” you ask? To become a USA Triathlon official, you must be a member of USA Triathlon, be in good physical condition, weigh less than 200 pounds and be capable of riding for hours at a time as a passenger on a motorcycle.
You also need to attend a 3-hour certification clinic held in conjunction with a USA Triathlon sanctioned triathlon or duathlon. There you learn about the USA Triathlon officials’ program and the competitive rules. The following day, you actually work at an event as an official under supervision of the head referee.
