The development grant provides support to officials to pursue an educational and/or developmental opportunity. Specifically, this is intended for an official that is in a unique situation (apprenticing, geographically isolated, or disadvantaged) and will provide support so that they may advance in the officiating ranks.
Funding is available for Senior Officials who have successfully completed four referee evaluations and who is attending a Swimming Canada Designated Competition and is apprenticing in a senior position. This individual must work a minimum of 4 sessions at the competition. Maximum grants available will be $1,500 per candidate and may be accessed only once. Swim Alberta will provide up to $3,000 annually supporting officials development.
