The period in question is from 2009 to 2014.

Meanwhile Persaud told Stabroek Sports that the officiating clinic which was scheduled for January will now be held in March.

He previously told this newspaper that the association was waiting for the world swimming association FINA to provide the name of a representative who would travel to Guyana to facilitate a clinic geared specifically for officials of the sport.

In March, Guyana will host several officials from Suriname who will be attending the clinic as they aim to have more officials recognized at the FINA level.
