Technical Officials in Masters Swimming

What is a technical official?

Masters Swimming Queensland is reliant on its volunteer officials to assist at all interclub and state swim meets. Anyone can become a technical official.

A technical official can be any one of the following:

  • Timekeeper
  • Chief Timekeeper
  • Marshall
  • Judge of Strokes
  • Inspector of Turns
  • Check Starter
  • Starter
  • Referee

Courses on any of the above are free.  To become a fully qualified official, all 'positions' need to be completed. The time it takes is dependent on the person.  The more you attend swim meets to fulfil the practical experience and accumulate the required hours, the sooner you achieve the complete qualification. 

For more information on the courses, click on Technical to take you to the MSA website.

Your club may wish to nominate one of your officials as the Official of the Year.
The nomination forms are available in the Menu: Information/Forms or click on Forms for quick access.
