Judges Training and Certification
Observation is the key element to being an artistic swimming judge.
Judging courses provide the ideals of performance for artistic swimming skills, or what to look for while a swimmer is completing a skill. Once the course is finished, practical experience, or shadow judging is completed in order for candidates to become used to looking for these ideals in a swimmers performance.
Alberta Artistic Swimming must receive payment by the deadline. You will be considered registered once payment is received
Candidates who complete this level will also become eligible to take on the role of technical monitor for routine events. There is no prerequisite for this course.
After each course is completed, shadow judging is required until the candidate feels comfortable judging at these levels. Level One is a prerequisite to the Level Two course.
Certified judges must keep their skills current by attending competitive meets and/or professional development sessions held throughout the seasons.
