FINA Water Polo School for Referees 

I have the pleasure to send you the following information related to the organisation of the FINA Water Polo School for Referees scheduled to be held in Barranquilla, Colombia, from 23rd to 25th July 2018.

The purpose of this course is to achieve the following objectives:

  • Enlarge the number of referees and enhance the quality of the existing ones;
  • Create a uniform pattern of interpretation and application of Water Polo rules, thus raising the quality of refereeing;
  • Use the school as an instrument to develop and promote Water Polo worldwide.

Please note the following information related to the designation & courses for water polo referees:

  • The FINA Water Polo Schools are organized every year for new water polo referees seeking to become FINA Water Polo Referees and for water polo referees seeking to update their FINA title.
  • Designation of FINA Water Polo Referees: only the referees who have passed the final exam and received the title of “FINA Water Polo Referee” will be eligible for FINA competitions.
  • Update course: referees who passed the exam and received their FINA titles in 2016 have their update course in 2018, whereas referees who received their FINA title in 2017 will have their update course in 2019.
