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 - 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
Judge 1/ Judge 2 or above includes AOE operator. 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, firstname.lastname@example.org
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.
