A FINA Technical Officials Clinic will be held in conjunction with the 2017 Theodist PNG National Championships from March 29 to April 2 this year.

The theory component from the March 29-31 will be at the Media Room at Taurama Aquatic Centre, while the practical section will be held 'in competition' from March 31 to April 2 at the Taurama Aquatic Centre 50m pool.

Dianne Farmer, a FINA Referee from New Zealand, will be facilitating the Clinic.

Farmer officiated at the 2015 Pacific Games and said she is very excited to be returning to Papua New Guinea.

Secretary of PNG Swimming Inc. (PNGSI), Carly Pini said this is an initiative from PNGSI, together with FINA and sponsors to promote education and development in the technical aspect of swimming.

“We encourage you to advise promptly of your interest in participation as numbers are limited. You must be available for all sessions.
