About Core Official

Core officials work in a range of officiating roles at Surf Sports carnivals. 

Officials working with entry level participants in a club surf sport environment (recreationally or competitively). Participants will generally be non-bronze proficient. Core Officials need to understand the core elements of the Surf Sport environment and how this relates to officiating in junior surf sport (beach, board and swim) environments. This course provides a basic understanding of the key events conducted for junior level competitions. Core Officials are permitted to Officiate at any carnivals and competitions including State Championships where up to and including under 14 years age categories are conducted. There are four duties that they can carry out: Marshall, Recording Judge, Timekeeping Judge and Finish Judge. Core Officials will be supervised at competitions by a competent Technical (or above) accredited Official.
