Swimming Technical Officials

Welcome to the Swimming Technical Officials page

Swimming Technical Officials are volunteers who run the operational side of swimming competitions in the North District.

Training of Swimming Technical Officials takes place by our volunteer committee overseen by the North District Swimming Technical Officials Convenor.

Return to the Water and Return to Competition Guidance

On 28 April Durno Jessiman hosted a great session with Sean Dawson about returning to Competition.

The presentation and documents referred to at the meeting can be accessed below.

The video of the session cannot be streamed from this site so if you want to view it you will need to be an STO and access it on the SASANorth Technical Officials Facebook Group. If you are not a member search for "SASA North District Technical Officials" in Facebook and apply to join.

For full information about return to the water after Co-vid, check out the Scottish Swimming Co-vid Hub.
