Somerset ASA Officials are co-ordinated by Graham Cockill who also chairs the Officials Panel and was our President in 2012.
ASA SW Region would again like to request help from our officials to run their events in 2017 and also other events at which the Region is asked to provide officials.
This year the Para Swimming CPD will be run before the event on 12 March 2017. Lunch will be provided and then everyone can get experience at the gala in the afternoon.
Please download the Notice from Lynne Elliott, Secretary SW Region Officials Committee and advise her which sessions / CPD you can attend.
Recently the Officials Exam Framework changed to allow for more practical and assessment based awards. A licensing system has also been introduced, something that since 2012 has been required for all officials at our County Swimming Championships.

Officials are not only required around the pool but on Open Water, with Water Polo and in Synchronised Swimming. The County Technical Secretaries for those events would also be delighted to hear from volunteers who wish to help officiate. Our Disability Swimming Co-ordinator would also be pleased to hear from anyone interested in becoming an official at Disability Events.
