Hosting an Officials Clinic

Swim Ontario recommends Clubs and Club Officials Chair (COC) plan additional in‐person clinics in order to train their officials for upcoming swim meets.   In‐Person Officials Clinics remain an integral part of the training and evaluation process for all Level I and Level II Officials. This facilitation of training includes instruction, discussion, Q&A (questions & answers) that is provided in a group setting at a location. The course conductor should review and know the material before presenting the material, with a view to having questions and answers discussed with the mentor present, including previous experiences and handling of situations to be provided in a dialogue.

Guidelines and Requirements for Officials Clinics presentations:

  • A Level II Official may present only the Level I Clinic with a Level IV or V Mentor present
  • A Level III Official may only present
    • the Level I Timekeeper Clinic, without a Mentor present.
    • Level II Clinics (except Starter) with a Level IV or Level V Mentor present
    • If a Level III Official wishes the clinic to have a sign‐off to count towards Level IV Certification, then a Level V Mentor must be present and observe the clinic presentation before signing the Officials Certification Card.
  • A Level IV Official may present any of the Level I and Level II Clinics without a Mentor.
    • If a Level IV Official wishes the clinic to have a sign‐off to count towards Level V Certification, then a Level V Mentor must be present and observe the clinic presentation before signing the Officials Certification Card.
  • A Level V Official may present any of the Level I or Level II Clinics and the Referee Clinic without a Mentor.

In order to help with educating officials in Ontario, Swim Ontario has created an optional registration of upcoming clinic information. Club Official Chairs can enter contact email as well as link for registration to the clinics.  We encourage Club Officials Chairs to share information and pool resources to help develop officials by co-hosting these clinics.  Everyone benefits from collaborations as more officials get educated and involved in officiating in Ontario.  Click on "Upload Clinic Date & Details" button in order to advertise upcoming clinic (optional).  To view upcoming clinic in your area click on "View Upcoming Clinics" button.

Register Clinics with Swim Ontario

Once the clinic is completed the COC will share the SIGN IN form and other collected documents with the Club Officials Administrator (COA) - if different from COC - who can then enter the information into the Swimming Canada registration system. 

The COC will register the clinic details with Swim Ontario once the clinic is completed (mandatory). 

 

 All COMPLETED clinics must be registered with Swim Ontario.
