National Technical Official Course

Canoe Sprint (CSP), Canoe Marathon (CAM) and Canoe Polo (CAP) Technical Officials are responsible for ensuring that an event is run in accordance with the International Canoe Federation (ICF) rules, create an atmosphere of sportsmanship, equality, fair play and optimise safety and protection.

The SCF conducts National Technical Official (NTO) training course for canoe sprint, canoe marathon and canoe polo to certify interested volunteers to officiate and assist in the local championships.

The SCF technical official course syllabus follows the ICF rules and regulation of the discipline. The courses will provide participants with a better understanding of the ICF requirements for a successful canoeing event.

These NTO courses also provide an opportunity for interested officials to develop to be International Technical Officials, where there will be opportunities to officiate at regional and international events.
