USATF-Florida Officials Stipend Request
Greetings. Our purpose at USATF/FL is promoting the sport of track and field. To that end, we are working to set a standard of compensation for Track and Field Officials. This is
not a mandate, but a recommendation
proposed by the USATF/FL
to address the inequity track and field officials incur while working Track Meets.
This is not a complete solution but a start on the road to generate more interest in officials working meets.
The purpose of the
fee structure below is to:
help recruit new officials and establish consistency in officials pay and
to help officials cover their cost (i.e., Travel, Supplies and Certification, etc.).
STIPEND (per day) STANDARDS:
$200 Referees/Starters (Will continue to be compensated for the shells that they use, invoice will be provided by the Starter)
$200 EDM Officials plus the rental equipment cost; support crews will be compensated based on their USATF Certification Level
$200 Lead Implement Inspector plus rental equipment cost; support crews will be compensated based on their USATF Certification Level
$175 Lead Event Officials
Provide overnight housing to Officials that are more than 40 miles from the track.
It is time we recognize the Officials that bring credibility and professionalism to our sport!
Nate Johnson, President
