New Roles in Artistic Swimming


WANTED – Volunteers to be the first cohort of Technical Controllers to be trained ready for the role out in 2024 of the new World Aquatics judging systems in England.


The role of a Difficulty Technical Controller is to review all of the technical required elements (technical routines), hybrids and acrobatics performed in real time as they occur in a routine, identifying any “technical errors”.
