With effect from 1st January 2015
It is both desirable and necessary that trainee officials across the board gain their poolside experience at the broadest possible range of events. With this in mind trainee officials who are members of ASA affiliated clubs will now be encouraged to gain poolside experiences across all levels of meets.
As such trainee officials will be required to evidence attendance at two sessions (where a “session” is a morning, afternoon or evening) at meet(s) licensed at either Level 1 or 2, two sessions at meet(s) licensed at Level 3 and experience signed off by a qualified referee at Level 4 meets. Any variances in this process will need to be sanctioned by the candidate’s Regional Officials’ Coordinator, during the candidate’s training period prior to final assessment.
