Our Area and clubs swim under FINA and
NSW swimming rules.
The most effective way to learn these rules and to ensure
that our meets are run efficiently and in accordance with these rules is to
obtain technical official accreditation from NSW Swimming in the various
disciplines required to run a meet.
The positions for which accreditation is offered are:
Both the Area and our club need
interested parents and young adults to train for these positions. Young people
aged 14-16 may complete a Restricted Timekeepers credential which will be
upgraded to a full credential on reaching the age of 16. A Restricted
Credential is valid for club and Area Level Meets.
Training sessions for each position
will take place at various venues throughout the district if there are
sufficient number of candidates. Each training session is of approximately 2 hours
The training sessions are followed by
examination and assessment of individuals to determine their competence to
perform the duties of the position. After assessment as competent, credentials
are issued by Swimming Australia under the National Officiating Program.
It can be arranged for you to do a
training session at one venue and to do the examination/assessment at another
venue if the dates do not suit you.- Let us know.
