RE. A note on Swim Ireland Officials Logbooks 2012-2015

On the 11th February the Swim Ireland officials committee agreed to revise a change with regards to officials collecting CPD experience and gaining experience and time on the pool bank and evidencing this within the Swim Ireland officials logbook. This logbook is issued to all officials going through a Swim Ireland official’s qualification.

The current policy in getting a Logbook signed allows for officials to get their logbooks signed by the referee after working one full day during a competition

The new Policy agreed by the officials committee in February will allow for officials to get their logbooks signed by the referee after working a session. This means that logbooks can be signed session by session. This decision was made to support all officials’ availability and working situation and to encourage officials of all ages to help and support competitions and be rewarded for their time spent volunteering at competitions.

Please note that this logbook must be signed by the competition Referee and the Logbook will remain the only reference book that will account for official’s experience.
