Has not been updated since 2009 – is this necessary?
It is easy to get started. The WCA will provide a clinic wherever there are at least three interested candidates. The introductory clinic takes about three hours, culminating with an open-book test.
Anyone can be an official. Those who are not yet eighteen years of age are restricted to assistant judge/scorer/timer positions. Prior experience in bicycle racing is helpful, but not required. You should be willing to spend long days in the hot sun or cold rain.
Knowledge of the rules among racers is relatively low. Having an official in the club should help your riders avoid penalties and help your club put on better races. It can reduce the club’s cost for organizing a race if club officials volunteer their services.
You are not required to work at all! You should work at least two races per year to maintain your category.
Officials are paid based on the prize list of the race, ranging from $50 for a race with no prize list, to $75 for a full-day category A race. Chief referees and chief judges receive slightly more. All officials receive $.46 per mile for travel to and from the race. Besides all that, you get a warm feeling in your heart knowing that you helped to provide a safe and fair competition for the racers.
