The role of the Officials Developer is an extremely important one, but one which up until now has not been formally recognized by Sport Ireland. Sport Ireland Coaching are aiming to develop a course that will seek to train those who have responsibility within an NGB to train officials, without which sports cannot run, flourish or compete.

We recognize the term official has Sport Specific meanings, for the purpose of this survey:

·       We use the term “official” as an umbrella term to cover all types of sports officials such as Referee, Linesperson, Umpire, Lines Judge, TimeKeeper, Score Judge etc.

·       An Officials Developer is the person tasked with training, developing and supporting these officials.

We would appreciate you taking the time out to complete this short survey if you are:

>  Someone who is currently or has previously been involved in training or supporting officials in an NGB

>   A Coach Developer or Tutor who also has a background in officiating

> An experienced Official who has a background in delivering training to, or supporting officials.
