In order to become a swim official at competitions, an individual must first get education through the Swimming Canada Officiating Clinics. An official can attend in-person instructor delivered clinics through their clubs, online live instructor-led webinars or through the Swimming Canada Education website for Officials with e-modules.


There are a variety of clinics Swimming Canada offers to cover the multiple positions necessary to run a competition. New officials typically begin with the Intro to Swimming Officiating, Safety Marshal and Inspector of Turns & Judge of Stroke clinics and gradually take other clinics as they gain experience at competitions. Once an individual has taken a clinic (via in-person instruction, online live instruction or e-module) they are qualified to work this position at competitions.
