5th East Region Referee Training Day

23 October 2017
52 Referees attended the  5th East Region Referee Training Day, which is held every other year. This year coincided with the rule changes adopted by FINA at the FINA General Congress in Budapest on 21 July 17 which recently came into force. 

The day started off with the Regional Swimming Manager David Metcalf updating and reminding colleagues with polices and procedures that have been implemented since the previous workshop in 2015. The training day was an ideal platform for discussion and learning by all. The refresher day goals, were to ensure a common practice and standardisation of procedures within the region.
