To keep HPK swimming club as one of the top swimming clubs in NZ, we need trained officials. We generally have a reasonable number of timekeepers but urgently need club members to train to be a Starter, IOT or Referee. Most of the officials currently qualified in these roles no longer have children swimming at the club. It is great that they are continuing to give the time to the club but we need new members to be training for these roles. The club race nights, counties leagues and club carnival are ideal opportunities to start training. Please contact Vicki to discuss how you can train. Remember it is the swimmmers who will miss out if there aren't sufficient officials.
