09 December 2012

CONGRATULATIONS to Sarah Paines (City of Ely SC) and Trevor Seddon (Sudbury & District SC) who have passed this year's British Swimming Referee Examination.


Two out of the five East Region swimming technical officials were successful, with special thanks to course leaders and referees who assisted in the training and poolside mentoring of the officials taking this year's examination.


For those wishing to register for the Referee Course in 2013, your application must be submitted by December 31, 2012. Click here for further details or to speak to a course leader.


The minimum age for training is 19, providing the candidate is aged 20 by November 30, 2013. Candidates must have proven poolside experience at Judge Level 1 and Judge Level 2 and must also have been qualified as Judge Level 2S for at least a year with a minimum of 10 hours post-qualification experience in that role at the time of application.

  • Attend a British Swimming Referee Course (at least 16 hours theory)
  • Complete the prescribed number of poolside duties (at least 10 Sessions practical)
  • Attain a pass mark in the theoretical examination in November 2013 (2 hours 15mins)
  • Complete a formal practical assessment
