Swimming NSW is proud to call for applications for its inaugural Referee Course. The aim of the Course is to educate and develop 20 Technical Officials to become Referees by the end of 2020.
The Swimming NSW Technical Committee, with guidance from the Area Technical Swimming Committee Coordinators, will select up to 20 Technical Officials to participate in the Swimming NSW Referee Course. The Course will commence in January 2020 and run until November, when we will aim for the candidates to complete their Level 1 Referee Assessment.
Please note: The normal Referee Accreditation process will still occur outside of this Course. i.e. it is not a requirement to complete this Course to become a Referee.
The Course will be led by a Course Manager who will host either a Webinar or face to face session every 6-8 weeks throughout the year with candidates to complete course work between these sessions. The Course will also feature guests presenters on specific topics of expertise, include a detailed curriculum specifically aimed at preparing the candidates to be competent Referees and how to source a Mentor.
To be eligible for this course, candidates must meet the following criteria:
- Swimming NSW Member
- Valid Working with Children Check
- Hold four current Technical Official accreditations (in addition to General Principles).
- It is not essential but desirable if candidates hold Inspector of Turn and Judge of Stroke accreditation
Applications for this course in 2021 close on 13th December. Details here.
