Swim England SW Open Water Officials Training

Would you like to officiate at events in the open air, rather than in a swimming pool? Why not enjoy the benefits of sun, sea and sand (sometimes!) whilst judging a swimming event!

Saturday 26 May (2pm to 6.30pm) – Wells Leisure Centre : classroom workshop sessions
Saturday 2 June  (timing tba) - Vobster Quay, Frome : practical sessions using skills learnt

Learn about officiating at Open Water events with the British Swimming Open Water Judge Level 1 qualification
Information on FINA rules relating to Open Water
Gain practical experience in boats and with swimmers. 
Then officiate at:
Swim England SW Open Water Championships 2018 including Somerset ASA Championships on Saturday 7 July 2018.

British Swimming Open Water Level 2 and Referee qualification courses can also be arranged to meet demand.

Please forward details to anyone you think may be interested in Officiating and ask them to make enquiries before all the spaces are taken.

If you are over 16 years of age and want to embark on this very enjoyable volunteering role then please register your interest with
