Time Keeping

You can assist Otumoetai Swimming Club as a timekeeper on Club Nights.  This is easy and we can show you how (NO experience needed).

Training is available so you can gain your timekeeper’s badge. OSC pays for examination and registration fees.  There is a practical component as well as a theory/oral assessment.  The assessor will talk you through any questions you may be unsure about.  This qualification allows you to officiate at outside carnivals as well and we expect parents to help out at these.


General requirement

Officials – At least one parent who has a child/children in ’Squads’ must become a swimming official – minimum requirement timekeeper.
Anyone wishing to do a timekeeper’s course please contact our Carnival Secretary
