Upcoming Officiating Opportunities - Check back here periodically for news regarding upcoming officiating opportunities. As always, if you officiate at a meet (even if not for a sign-off) please ensure you email the COC so details can be tracked for officiating and volunteer credits and for officials development.

Upcoming CPWD Officiating Clinics - Stay tuned to updates from the COC and check back here periodically. Read further down for information about training opportunities through Swim Ontario webinars and clinic opportunities hosted by other clubs. As always, attending officials clinics (including webinars) earns volunteer points. It also contributes towards club progress with officials development, a critical part of operating a swim club.

CPWD will re-schedule it's earlier planned StrokeAndTurn c‎linic once we understand when we might be able to conduct such.

Swim Canada Online E-Modules - Logon with your officials account(not the same account as for your swimmer registration) to access the Swimming Canada E-Learning modules for Safety Marshal, Level1/Intro-To-Officiating and Chief Timer (https://edu.swimming.ca/). New officials can become a Level 1 Official via these online E-modules if they are not able to attend an initial clinic training session in person (ask the COC if you wish to become an official with CPWD, like all clubs we can always use more officials). As a registered official, the Chief Timer clinic can also be conducted via these E-Learning modules.

Officials Training Clinics Reference Material - This material and slides are from the various training clinics (https://swimming.ca/en/clinics/). You can refer to these for a refresher once and a while and if you like in final prep/review before working a session. Please note that simply reviewing these does not constitute having attended a clinic or received the training. In order to be qualified for working a position at a meet, one must always have conducted registered training and with records appropriately annotated through the Swim Canada System (ask the COC).

Steps to Register as an Official with CPWD - The 6 simple steps below are quick and only involve entry of some basic information collected via a SwimON online registration form. Once done, the COC will be able to complete your officials registration and will be in touch for any required next steps or further information.

------------------

At the last step below, YOU MUST ENTER THE CPWD COA/COC email address (cpwd.coc@gmail.com) in the form, DO NOT LEAVE the nicole email address in the form.

Step 1 - Visit the following web page and quickly scan the introduction then select \next\ at the bottom and it will mainly guide you through the steps (https://form.jotform.com/SwimOntario/2019-20-official-registration).

Step 2 - Fill in the required basic information. Make sure to select "CPWD" as club from the drop down list. If you are not sure of your current certification level then select "no level". If you are not sure if you might act as a Meet Manager this season then select "no" (most people need to select "no").

Step 3 - Read the PIPEDA Consent form and select consent. The consent form is standard SwimON practice and is not new. If you have previously consented you still need to consent again as an official (go to the bottom and check off the consent).

Step 4 - Read the SwimON Code of Conduct and Ethics for officials and then indicate you have. This is the standard SwimON Code of Conduct and Ethics and is not new.

Step 5 - If your certification level is four or above, you will be required to enter some information for the standard required Police Record Check / Offense Declaration. This is not a new requirement. For everyone else, you will be able to skip over this step. If you indicated you might act as a Meet Manager or if your certification level is four or above, you will be required to read a bunch of information about Rowans Law and concussion awareness. Read these and indicate you have. These are new awareness rules that have come into effect. The information is also available for re-reading on the CPWD website (you do not need to know it all the first time through). Most people will be able to skip over this step for officials registration.

Step 6 - You will be presented a signature page. It is awkward, but make some sort of signature or initial marks in the box. IMPORTANT - AT THIS STEP YOU MUST ENTER THE CPWD COA/COC email address (cpwd.coc@gmail.com) in the form, DO NOT LEAVE the nicole email address in the form.
