Young Official Ben Jelley tells us about his officiating experiences.
Name: Ben Jelly
Club: City of Coventry Swimming Club
Starting as a Time Keeper at the age of sixteen Ben is now viewed as an experienced young official. Through volunteering and officiating he has been lucky enough to be involved in a number of national events including 4 UK School Games, the ASA Youth Championship and the International Children’s Games. His words of wisdom to other young people wanting to get involved in volunteering are to ‘stay up to date with what is going on within the swimming community and make sure you get to know people’ they will always offer you advice in officiating if you need it.
