Our Club cannot function without parent volunteers, but helping us out as an Official or a qualified volunteer has never been simpler. If you want to take your first steps to being a J1 Official or you just want to be able to help us more during events such as Club Championships and Open Meets by obtaining Safeguarding qualifications, then please read the details on this page.
Becoming an Official
A new regime has recently been introduced which makes training and qualifying as a swimming official more flexible and straightforward. New officials start by taking an online training module for Swimming Judge Level 1, which can be done in your own time at home. Please read the file below for more details and links to online training courses. Thank you in advance for your help!
An aquatics-specific safeguarding course has been created by Swim England and it is available as a Zoom based webinar, so you can attend from the comfort of your home.
Check out the Swim England East Region availability first as they only cost £10 to club members.
Alternatively a £25 course is available from the Institute of Swimming website:
