Comments from the attendees:
From Juan Carlos Fortuno: The resource assigned for the course, Mrs. Ginny Jasontek, was outstanding. She has total command of the Synchronized Swimming Manual, and is an outstanding communicator of the various aspects of fair judging in this sport.
The detailed assessment and discussion of multiple solo, duet, group and combo routines were an asset for all of us in the process of becoming synchro judges. Thanks to the input and discussions, I certainly feel better prepared to endeavor us a judge in future competitions.
Please send my appreciation to Mrs. Jasontek. I am sure I speak not only for myself,but for the multiple delegations that participated in the workshop as well.
From Laura Montes: It was a well-organized event with great participation. The instructor Ginny was excellent and she provided a collaborative and engaging course. I personally found it to be extremely valuable to develop as a judge.
Our thanks go to Rose Cody and Zully Garcia who arranged the venu and transportation and housing as well as giving all the students a grand warm welcome to San Juan. Thanks also go to the Federation for their support in this very important venture to help UANA to present to FINA this pool of new judges for them to use in future events.
