Volunteers and Officials

As a successful team with swimmers competing at all standards to National level, we are obliged to have a minimum number of qualified officials on the team, to help at competitions.

We really need volunteers (parents, guardians and/or extended family) to get involved!

Our team requires, at least, four officials at Level One (timekeepers), two officials at Level Two (stroke and turn judge) and one official attending Officials School (probationary judge).

What, Where and When…

Lucky for us, Swim Ireland Connacht are hosting a training day, right on our doorstep, in Kilcornan on Saturday 10th November 2018.

Officials Level One:
Saturday 10th November
11am to 12:30
Kilcornan, Clarenbridge

Officials Level Two:
Saturday 10th November
1:30 to 6pm
Kilcornan, Clarenbridge

Bonus… Do the course free of charge!

Do both courses… and Swim Ireland Connacht and Bluefin SC will refund the total cost!

How do I book on?

Volunteers can book through the Swim Ireland Education office booking system on the Swim Ireland website.
