Swimming New Zealand has organised a FINA School for Officials to be held on Saturday 17 – Sunday 18 April 2021.

The intention was for this school to be held in person, located in Wellington ahead of the 2021 Aon NZ Age Group Swimming Championships, however Covid-19 has resulted in FINA shifting these events to be hosted as a webinar on the same dates. This does however mean that you can attend from home, so the opportunity to attend has increased. Spots are limited to 100, so please apply promptly so you don’t miss out

There will still be a room organised with internet access for those who be in Wellington ahead of NAGS, however each participant will need to bring their own laptop or tablet device for the sessions.


The FINA School for Officials offers a great opportunity for new and developing officials, and also for experienced officials because attendance at a FINA School is a requirement for those aspiring to attain a place on a FINA Officials List in the future.
