Who are the people in white? They could be you!
Enjoy going to galas but find the day can be long and tiring? Fancy avoiding the queues and getting in for free? Reckon you’d look good in white?!
The ASA and CSWPC are always on the look out for new judges and timekeepers. It can be an enjoyable and rewarding experience to be down on poolside in the thick of the action. All you need to do to qualify is attend some training courses, which can be provided by the club, and get some poolside mentoring during galas by shadowing the judges and timekeepers.
Judges are always to remain impartial , but you still get the odd moment to give encouragement to our swimmers. You have to remain focused and concentration levels need to be high but the job is fun and it means you have the best view in the house when it comes to watching the racing. On a practical note, it is also cooler poolside than sat up in the spectator’s area and you normally get a free lunch!
This is a great way to support both your children and the club and it would not be possible to run competitions without our volunteer officials.
If you want to give it go, please contact John Bell and he will get the ball rolling.
Now go and get yourself some whites………………………………………………………!!
