The current Midland District rule (M.R.8.0) 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 requested in advance by e-mail to the   District STO Convenor,

Volunteer roles: Announcer, marshalls 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. 

Requests for Officials will be issued in due course. It is not sufficient for officials to turn   up on the day – prior   notification online at least 2 weeks in advance is essential – this   can be done by following the below link.

Anyone assisting at 2 consecutive sessions on either day will be   offered lunch. All lunches must be   ordered at the same time as the online Officials registration and at least 2   weeks in advance. No additional lunches can be offered on the day. 

Officials will assemble for briefing sessions in a venue which will be   announced. A list of duties will be   posted in advance and officials are requested to report at least 30 minutes in advance of the start time of the gala for   briefing. All designated Recorders   should report to the Championship Convenor one hour in advance of the start of the session.

Volunteers for this meet, other than STOs, will be co-ordinated by   Blairgowrie and Menzieshill Whitehall. Offers of assistance of any sort, from any club, are much appreciated.   Volunteers are required for Announcing/Marshalling/start sheet distribution /   posting results/ and presentations.
