Adaptive Track & Field USA

Setting the standards and records
for adaptive athletes in the USA

Note: Course has been revised for
          2019 rule changes.    

Officials are the backbone of Athletics.  In order to have fair competition there must be rules and Officials who enforce them. 

If you are a meet organizer you must have a complement of qualified Officials. Click above link to our Find an Official App
to find Certified Para Officials for your meet. 

Although all officials on the list have passed the Para Course and Test, we cannot confirm all officials are in compliance with USA Track and Field (USATF) guidelines. If your meet is USATF Sanctioned, you need to contact your local USATF Association to verify that the officials being used are:
1. Current members of USATF; 
2. Have current a SafeSport certification;
3. Have passed a current background check

There is a process to be a USA PARA Official. 

  1. Join USAT&F and sign up to be an Official. 
  2. Go through the Apprentice process and become an Association Level Official
  3. Take the Officials Course.  OFFICIALS COURSE   (Revised 4_15_2019
    Test may not be available due to US Paralympics WEB Site Changes.  Check later this month).
  4. Take the Officials Test.    

 If you want to officiate at a meet and not join USATF you can take the course and take the test.  you will not be able to be a lead official but you can volunteer.
