As a club we aim to recruit and train a number of officials who can then be available to help at the galas we run and attend as a club. Having qualified officials is crucial to swimming. Without them, meets cannot be licensed and swimmers' times not will not be officially recognized. Additionally, it will often be a condition of the meets we enter as a club that we provide a certain number of officials, so by becoming qualified you can directly help our swimmers.

There are several grades of licensed officials, ranging from timekeeper through to referee. More information on the levels and requirements can be found on the ASA website. The training is a combination of theory and practical experience where you will be mentored by fully qualified officials.

If you would like to join our existing team of officials, please email us for details - we would be delighted to hear from you. It really does make a difference for our swimmers and, from experience, those who sign up find it's a rewarding way to spend time at meets.
