Officials play a very important part in our sport. As volunteers, they donate their time, knowledge and expertise to assist in the development of our athletes and are valued members of the Association. There are different types of officials which fall into three main categories: evaluators/judges, referees and accountants. Judges are perhaps the best known officials and they are usually former skaters who have had a positive experience in the sport and wish to help others attain their goals.
Officials, outside the arena, are doctors and lawyers, school teachers and librarians, domestic engineers, business administrators, police officers, paramedics, financial analysts, university students, professors, marathon runners, writers and so on. You will find more information on the types of officials and how to become involved in this section.
