Officials Clinics

Officials Clinics

Officiating clinics will be held at the Calgary Winter Club early in the swim season.  Parents will be informed of clinic dates by e-mail.  Additional clinics are held at other locations in Calgary.  Some clinics are available to complete online

We suggest that parents complete the officiating clinics  as soon as possible so that they can begin to complete the volunteer requirements early in the swim season.  It is also important to be ready to assist with the Sea Lions Winter Cup Swim Meet and the Fundamentals Swim Meet, both of which are held at the Calgary Winter Club (hosted meets).  To find clinics that are being offered in the Calgary area or to complete an online clinic, please search the Officials tab at

See the information below to complete online modules.  Also see the Clinics option under the Officials tab on the Swim Alberta website for more information.

Online Clinic Certification / E-Learning Modules Procedure

Please contact the Sea Lions Officials Coordinator (Contact information is available under the Sea Lions Committee tab) to ensure you receive credit for completing a clinic.


After a clinic has been completed (either in class or online), new officials need to be mentored by an official qualified and experienced at this level prior to being certified to fill the role on one's own.  Please inform the Officials Coordinator that an experienced official is needed as a mentor in order to become certified.  Mentoring can be done at hosted & non-hosted swim meets.
