Officials

The current Midland District rule (M.R.7.0) means clubs   entering swimmers in District Events must provide names of officials   available for each SESSION. This is to   ensure that minimum numbers are present to permit accreditation of the meet.   Regulations stipulate that each session must comply otherwise the whole meet   may lose accreditation. The number to be supplied is proportional to the   number of swimmers entered for the Championships, as follows:

♦  1   - 2 swimmers : 0 officials per SESSION 

♦  3   - 4 swimmers : 1 official per SESSION 

♦  5   – 8 swimmers: 2 officials per   SESSION, at least one of whom must be Judge 1 or above

♦  9 - 12   swimmers: 3 officials per SESSION,   at least one of whom must be Judge 2 or above

♦ 13 -16 swimmers: 4 officials per SESSION, at least one of whom   must be Judge 1 or above and at least one of whom must be Judge 2 or above

♦ 17 -20 swimmers: 5 officials per SESSION, at least one of whom must   be Judge 1 or above and at least one of whom must be Judge 2 or above

♦ 21 or more swimmers: 6 officials per SESSION, at least two of whom   must be Judge 1 or above and at least one of whom must be Judge 2 or above

AOE operator and Recorder count as J2.

Trainee Officials will count at their qualified level (ie. Judge 1   trainee counts as Timekeeper). Mentoring may be provided depending on numbers   of qualified officials and must be indicated on the officials sign up form

Volunteer roles: Announcer, marshals and runners are provided by the   organising club(s) and are not counted.

Clubs unable to comply with this Rule may   request assistance from another Club, providing expenses if necessary, and inform   the STO coordinator accordingly. Any club falling below the required minimum   will be required to pay a fine of £20 per session for each missing official. 

STO’s wishing to officiate at this meet must   complete the online sign up form below by Wednesday 22nd January 2020.
