Effective September 1, 2015, the National registration procedure requires all officials who wish to officiate at a sanctioned competition be registered annually on the Swimming Canada registration site within two weeks (14 days) of commencing activity as an Official.
As per the Swimming Canada registration policy for officials, an official is defined as an individual pursuing officiating certification in order to volunteer qualified officiating services at sanctioned swimming competition.
As of September 1, 2016, the Club Officials Administrator (COA) will initiate the registration of an official once they receive the Privacy Consent Form (PIPEDA) form the official in their club. An independant official provides this form to Swim Ontario (firstname.lastname@example.org).
A template for clubs, COC or COA for registration of officials for the 2016-2017 season can be found HERE
Each official will have their own account separate from swimmer(s) accounts.
