New Swim England Requirements at Licensed Meets

20th December 2018

Please note that you cannot use J1 trainees unless they conform to the new requirement:  they must have attended BOTH sessions 1 and 2, had their Timekeeper competency signed off and undertaken mentoring during the previous six months.

Full details can be found at https://www.swimming.org/sport/licensed-meets/ where the last paragraph reads:  

"In order to act as a 'Judge 1 in training' for meet licensing purposes the individual must:

  • Have enrolled on a Judge 1 course and attended both the timekeeper theory session (unless already qualified as a timekeeper) and the first judging theory session
  • Pass a poolside timekeeper’s assessment (unless already qualified as a timekeeper)
  • Have undertaken at least 1 mentored session within the last 6 months in the role of Inspector of Turns, recorded in their workbook and signed off by a qualified and licensed Referee. "
