Swimming Technical Officials
spacer
Swimming Technical Officials (STOs) are a central part of every swimming event and they play an important role in ensuring that the events run smoothly, safely and within the sport’s regulations.
spacer
A number of roles exist within officiating, including:
  • Timekeeper
  • Judge 1
  • Judge 2
  • Judge 2S
  • Recorder
  • Referee
  • Automatic Officiating Equipment (AOE) Operator
spacer
A swimming competition can not run successfully without STOs. In order for a meet to be formally accredited, the following minimum number of STOs are required in a 6 lane pool like Westhill:
  • 19 Timekeepers
  • 15 Judges
  • 2 Recorders
  • 2 Referees
  • 1 Starter
  • 1 Automatic Officiating Equipment (AOE) Operator
spacer
If the meet is not accredited, swimmers will not achieve accredited times which will then restrict them entering subsequent meets in the future, thus capping their potential.
spacer
It is of a major concern to us that there is currently a shortage of officials in the club. As our older swimmers decide to move on due to other commitments it means that the number of qualified officials is falling. We must be proactive in replacing these officials especially in our competitive squads. We would therefore request that at least one parent from each family be qualified as a STO official or volunteer to help out when WDASC organise meets at the pool.
spacer
Your understanding and support in this matter is much appreciated as we endeavour to sustain our strong position within the North District and continue to progress the club for the benefit of both our current and future swimmers.
