Officials step out onto national stage
Swimming WA will have six officials representing the State at this year’s State Teams Age Short Course Championships.
Lesley Arrowsmith (mentor official), Trevor Verran, Barb Kelly, Fiona Christie, Simon Holland and Steve Hill will travel to the nation’s capital for the three-day meet, which sees States and territories compete against each other at the Australian Institute of Sport.
The championships also doubles as an opportunity for developing officials to gain enough experience to allow them to officiate at National Age and Open Championships.
The officials, who were selected after showing commitment to officiating at Swimming WA meets, will also take part in a series of workshops over the weekend.
