2023 - 2024 Season EOI (Application to Officiate)

The smooth conduct of LAQ competitions and events, and wellbeing of Officials will be paramount. Appointments will be based on applications received and qualifications held or experience of the applicants. With sufficient applications, rotations of Officials between events relevant to experience and or accreditation will occur.

It is LAQ’s preference that nominees for Manager and Referee positions hold Level 2 or 3 Accreditation and or have previous experience and or appointment relevant to the roles. Nominees for the Event or Area Chief positions should hold Level 2 Accreditation for the relevant area(s); however, exceptions are allowed for.

Please note that:

  • Lodgement of an Expression of Interest (EOI) does not guarantee appointment to the specific role(s) or area(s) requested.
  • Submitted applications to officiate are usually endorsed, and rarely rejected.
  • Appointments for LAQ competitions are published on the LAQ Competition Official’s webpage and on the LAQ Competition Officials Stack App page as they become available.
  • Individual notices will not be issued.
  • Appointments may change at the discretion of the Officials Manager and Officials Committee.

Practical assessment requests to further Official's Accreditation should be indicated in the provided areas during the application process.  Applicants must also have a record card on hand and report to the Officials Manager at the beginning of the Competition.  Please note that assessments will be subject to availability of appropriate Officials.
