About Technical Officials (TO)

What is a Technical Official (TO)?

Because there are 4 different swimming strokes, there are many rules that need to be followed by swimmers. Our TOs are there to make sure there is an even playing field for all swimmers and so their experience of the sport is enjoyable and satisfying. 

For more information on becoming a TO and the TO Development Pathway, check out our TO Development Pathway information booklet, here.
