Officiating at SGC

We are extremely lucky to have some of the best technical officials, not only in the country, but in the world residing on the Gold Coast. These extraordinary volunteers give their time freely to ensure that all swim meets are conducted in a fair and inclusive manner, making sure the FINA rules of swimming are adhered to and communicated to swimmers and coaches, where required. There is no definite commitment in terms of time and availability requirements - we want you to be happy on pool deck; and with the calibre of officials on the Gold Coast, there will be plenty of friendly assistance, advice and resources for those willing to step up and give it a go.

The SGC Technical Committee is made up of the best of the best and consists of:

Sharon Wicking - Chief Referee - Level 2 Referee

Karen McLeod - Swimming Australia and Swimming Queensland Technical Manager and former FINA referee

Alan Smith - Former Swimming Queensland Technical Chair and current FINA Referee

Tracy Rawlings - Level 2 starter and Level 2 Referee

Kim Cook - Former SGC President and Level 3 Starter

Recently departed:

Michael Cox - Former Swimming Queensland President and current Swimming Australia Board Member
