The Regional Open Water Group hope to run an Open Water Officials Training course later this year. An online course is currently being piloted and it is hoped that this will be ready by the summer.
Candidates are not required to have Officials experience to take part in the training however you will need to be prepared to travel to other Regions in order to get experience of the roles such as Timekeeper, Turning Judge, Place Judge, Clerk of the Course, in order to complete the course. The Open Water events run from the end of June to early August with Masters also usually taking place in September. Open Water Officials also need to be prepared for all types of weather!
