Photo-Finish Course (SATURDAY 7TH APRIL & SUNDAY 8TH APRIL) 10AM - 4PM

Ever wondered how the photofinish team set up, how it works and how it can be so accurate at meetings? Well, here's a rare chance...

Parents, athletes, PE students, coaching, other volunteers and spectators are all welcome to attend this session in Swansea but hurry, this short course is FREE and on a first-come first-served basis.

Two courses are proposed with the first on 7th April commencing at 10.30am at Swansea University. The course will be two hours long and will cover the UK Athletics Officials Photo-finish course.

The tutor will be Jeff Marsden and will be the starting point for any-one wishing to volunteer at a match, or wishes to gain the level 1 qualification. Experience and progression will also be explained at the course.

The second course will be held from 1.00pm until approximately 3.00pm. The purpose is to train volunteers in the setting up and use of laptops and other equipment to produce photo-finish results. This will be a "hands on" course using Welsh Athletics equipment.

The course will be run by Derek Crowder and Jeff Marsden and will be sufficient to allow for its use at matches.

Swansea Harriers are planning an Open Meeting the following day (Sunday 8th April) where attendees at the course can set up and operate the equipment.
