Every club is required to provide officials at surf carnivals and the ratio is based on the number of competitors. North Cott strives to have participants in as many disciplines as possible which then requires us to have a strong presence in the offciating arena. This could be in water or beach areas.

All officials are highly trained volunteers who can get involved in local carnivals, State Championships, The Aussies and The Worlds. Coordinated by the doyen of officials John Barwood, this section is highly rewarding and a fantastic opportunity to be connected to the competition side of the club.

We are always looking for members interested in taking that next step and becoming officials, so if you would like to learn more about becoming an official please contact John or the office on 9284 2626.
