NTIS and AFLNT partner to present officiating workshop in Alice Springs


The Northern Territory Institute of Sport (NTIS) and AFLNT are partnering to present an officiating workshop for sporting officials from all sports, with the workshop being held in Alice Springs on 26 May.

Officiating is a vital component for the successful running of competitive sport in the Territory and the workshop is a 90 minute open forum for sporting officials in Alice Springs and the surrounding areas to share experiences and to learn from each other.

AFL Umpires will be in attendance to share their stories and inspire NT officials.

NTIS Acting Director, Michael Watkins, said that sport was a way of life in the Territory and it is important the NTIS run events to support and recognise our officials who help make sport great in the NT.

“For competitive sport to thrive it is essential to have a well-developed group of officials, and we are committed to focusing on, and delivering, quality programs and initiatives to support the development of officials in the NT.

”Regular formal and informal discussions amongst colleagues and peers to discuss typical day to day challenges are a key ingredient for successful progress of knowledge, capability and experience in any field. We are delighted to partner with AFLNT to facilitate this type of opportunity for officials in Alice Springs and surrounding areas,” Mr Watkins said.

The Workshop program starts at 5:30pm and finishes at 7:00pm at Mona’s Lounge, TIO Traeger Park, Alice Springs on Friday 26 May.
