Official Uniform and Equipment
USATF Certified Officials must come to each event dressed appropriately and are required to maintain a professional appearance at all times. The National Uniform should be worn at all National Championships. The new officials’ uniform shirt is a NIKE Dri-Fit navy blue polo. This will replace the current red and blue polo. Every (re)certified official will be eligible to order one new shirt at no cost. Officials may purchase additional shirts for a price of $49.50 plus $6.95 shipping.  Orders will be placed through the USATF Certified Officials online store.
