Becoming an Official


Would you like to be part of exciting events in Victoria with opportunities to work interstate and overseas?  You may be interested in helping out your local club while your child is swimming or perhaps you are a past swimmer wanting to give back to the sport you received so much pleasure from.  Officiating is a wonderful way to watch a swim meet - imagine having the best seat in the house on pool deck at your local club meets, National Championships or even the Olympic Games!

Swimming Victoria facilitates the development of individuals interested in becoming an Official and being part of the team that brings swimming to life in Victoria.  Swimming Victoria is very appreciative of the work that all Officials do to assist on pool deck and behind the scenes at our competitions and within the Club and District swimming environment.
