1.Maintaining Master Official currency. In order to be considered current as a
Master Official, the official must work a minimum of 4 sessions over 2 meets and
participate in at least 1 clinic each year. Master Officials who do not comply as
Active Level V Officials may apply for reinstatement to their provincial chair of
officials, who may require certain senior level clinics, is re-done. (Particularly the
Stroke & Turn and Referee clinics) (SNC Rule Book)
2. Cross Training and Certification of Summer Officials. Jan 98 the British
Columbia Summer Swimming Association (BCSSA) has for many years provided
us with many fine, experienced officials. Our two organizations do however
differ in many ways and this also applies to officiating and to the rules we have to
enforce. On many occasion the question was asked, what are the rules pertaining
to certifying summer officials into the winter program. The BCSSA certifies their
officials similar to SNC and have a similar ranking. Over the years an unofficial
practice was developed but until recently it was not formally documented. The
directors of the BCSOA have authorized the following rules as it pertains to the
certification of the BCSSA Officials: For Level I through III, those positions the
individual presently is certified in will be recognized by SNC providing the
individual completes the relevant SNC questionnaire and they are corrected to
100%. i.e. A BCSSA Level II official; certified Level I, Chief Timekeeper and
Stroke and Turn will be given the corresponding SNC status providing those
applicable questionnaires have been completed. A BCSSA Level IV official,
(they have no Level V) will be granted SNC Level IV providing all the
questionnaires have been completed and a satisfactory deck evaluation carried
out. The progression to SNC Level V would then be conducted normally, as we
do now. (1998 AGM Mins)
3. Selection of the Uniglobe Official of the Year. Award for Officiating Excellence
