J1 Part 1 Course - SIGN UP NOW !!!

We are again at an all-time low with volunteer Officials at our club – This is a vital role in maintaining the running of our club.  It would be great to get some new CMK trainees as officials from all squads from Academy to Elite.

A new J1 Part 1 Training Course has been scheduled by the County.

If you are interested– have a read below and see the sign-up link below.

If you would like to talk through this, please get in touch and we can give you more details.

No swimming experience necessary, full training is provided.

J1 Part 1: Sat 14th Sept at 10am at Bicester LC

Benefits of being an official:

  1. All swim clubs are run by volunteers and a Swim Official is a key volunteer role. Without Officials:
    1. CMK would be unable to run our own home meets which are a vital source of income for the club
    2. Swimmers times would not be ratified for ASA rankings
  2. Poolside view of your swimmer without having to pay entry fees
  3. Free refreshments throughout the day

Frequently, reserved free parking spaces at venues

For every swim meet we need a minimum of twenty officials to ensure we meet Swim England licensing regulations. Come and give it a go, and see if being an Official is for you. 

The requirements to become a qualified Level 1 official are:

  • J1 Part 1 Training course which is a 2 hour theory session
  • Timekeeper assessment at a meet
  • J1 Part 2 Training course which is a 2 hour theory session
  • Practical poolside experience (typically 8 to 10 sessions required to gain correct levels of practical experience)

Look forward to hearing from you
