Swim Ontario defines an Independent Official as any registered official level 2 or higher who does not have an active swimmer with a club in Ontario, and is not associated with a club as an alumni.
Independent officials who are willing to give of their time to support the sport of swimming for multiple sessions in a given season can register directly with Swim Ontario.
Independent Officials will be registered under the ORON banner – Officials Registration Ontario (as per the SNC Registration Procedure and Rules).
The Provincial Officials Administrator (POA) will be their contact for registration and other inquiries. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for support.
An independent official agrees, by submitting their application to be a registered Swimming Canada / Swim Ontario official, to abide by and comply with the By-Laws, policies, procedures, rules and regulations of Swim Ontario including the Swim Ontario Comprehensive Code of Conduct and Ethics.
