Technical Officiating is a large part of swimming and we welcome having people involved in officiating and growing themselves within the technical pathway.

The Head of Technical in our region is Keith Bone - 0212426535.. Keith is Technical Assessor, across the region but focussing in Hawke's Bay. He is also supported by Janet Joblin in Gisborne.

Members of the HBPB Swimming Technical Committee are: Keith Bone, Janet Joblin, Donna Blair, Sonia Keepa, Karen Kamper, Blair Benson and Charlie Drager. Janet Joblin was appointed to the SNZ Technical Advisory Committee (TAC) in 2023.

HBPB Swimming as a sport is extremely reliant on volunteers and officials - at a committee level, and also as technical officials in order to run the competitive side of swimming.

As a region we are fortunate to have a good volunteer base, but encourage any additional parents/friends of the sport to contact HBPB Swimming regarding the pathway to get involved in swimming.
