When our swimmers compete at meets & galas, GASC has to provide a minimum number of technical officials. Parents/family members need to volunteer for the following roles:
The role of a timekeeper is to accurately time & record times of swimmers. To become an official timekeeper for GASC all you need to do is attend a Timekeeper’s Workshop coordinated by Scottish Swimming. This involves a short theory session followed by a poolside practical assessment in Inverurie. Becoming a timekeeper is a great way to get involved in your child’s swimming & to get to know other parents in the club.
If you are interested in becoming a timekeeper please email our STO Co-ordinators at email@example.com.
For those that have done a bit of timekeeping and can see that officiating at a meet is not as terrifying as it may have seemed when you first started, we’d like you to consider the next step on the ladder of swimming technical officials. This would involve becoming a Judge 1 whose role and duties are of a Timekeeper, Chief Timekeeper and Inspector of Turns. To become a judge 1 you need to attend a workshop run by SASA North District, be mentored at meets, then complete a final oral and practical examination.
If you have achieved all your timekeeper signatures and are interested in progressing to becoming a Judge please email our STO Co-ordinators at firstname.lastname@example.org
