Budding Olympic Officials: Training Starts Here!

PREPARATIONS are well under way for the first National Technical Officials (NTOs) meeting to be staged in Nottingham on September 4/5 - and if you’re planning to go along you need to confirm your attendance by this Friday, August 20.

The meeting is the first of several being staged around the country by Olympic Handball Competition Manager Alex Gavrilovic, with the aim of building a team of British officials for the 2012 Olympics in London.

The first session is on September 4 from 12-3pm, and is an introductory NTO (Statistician) training session. Then from 3-6pm, there is an introductory NTO (Table Official) training session.

This session for budding table officials will be repeated the following morning, Sunday September 5, from 10-12.

Sunday also sees the traditional Nottingham Pre-Season Tournament take place from 10am-7pm, which will include eight teams, 16 matches, and a great chance to see some top domestic handball action.

The workshops will include theory and simulated practical opportunities, and in addition participants will officiate and/or shadow officials at the Tournament on Sunday.

If you’re attending please reply to alex.gavrilovic@london2012.com stating which sessions you will be attending.
