36 per cent of foreign participation in the international refereeing courses that coincide with the European Championships in Castellón

 72 percent of the registrations for the pool and ocean lifesaving training courses are women

Thirty-six percent of the twenty-five registrations for the two international referee training courses to be held in Castellón de la Plana to coincide with the Youth and Open Lifesaving European Championships, to be held between 12 and 18 September, are from outside Spain.

Specifically, five of the thirteen places on the pool course come from abroad and four of the twelve places on the ocean course.

Women make up the majority of those registered, accounting for 72 percent of the total number of places, 69.3 percent in the pool competition course and 75 percent in the ocean competition course.

The courses are organised by the Royal Spanish Lifesaving in collaboration with the International Lifesaving Federation of Europe (ILSE), and will be held at the same venues as the European Championships, the Municipal Olympic Pool and Gurugú Beach.

The Women and Sport Programme of the Consejo Superior de Deportes (Spanish National Sports Council) will grant the registration fees for the Spanish female referees registered, while the Royal Spanish Lifesaving will cover the registration fees of the Spanish male referee and the board and lodging for the Spanish female referees and the Spanish male referee.

The pool course will take place from 11th to 14th September and the ocean course from 15th to 18th September. 2021/8/19
