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
