Officiating is essential to the successful operation of aquatics competitions in the North East. Without the support of volunteers as officials many of the events within the region and nationally would just not happen. Becoming an official is a great way to provide support to your club and the athletes within it as well as giving you the opportunity to learn new skills and meet new people.

From the age of 16 there are a number of officiating roles that you can do during a competition which require minimum training and commitment. These include judging, time keeping, starting, referring, assessing and scoring.
