What They Do

Our Officials

Our officials are a key part of our swimming community.  Without officials, swimming simply wouldn’t exist – and in the Waikato, we’re lucky to have some of New Zealand’s best.   

They call themselves a ‘family’ and they give up literally hours of their time each year to support the delivery of swim meets throughout the Waikato. 

Many of our officials’ children have long since left the sport, but they continue to take leave from their jobs and give up their weekends to help us deliver swimming events, understanding the importance of the role they play and enjoying giving back to the communities where they live.

Our group of officials are led by our technical panel who have been qualified officials for many years and are hugely experienced in all things swimming.
