Official Training NOW available

Great News!! Official Training is officially available NOW 🙂 

What is an official you may ask? The Job of the official is to observe the swimmers in their assigned lanes from the time they take their first arm pull after entering the water or beginning a race through the completion of their race. The officials ensure that the strokes, turns and finishes comply with the rules applicable to each stroke. If strokes, turns or finishes are executed in a matter which is out of compliance with the rules, in the spirit of fairness, the official documents the information to disqualify a swimmer from a race. This information is then passed on to the coaches to let them know what a swimmer is doing incorrectly and need to improve upon.

What actions do you need to do to become an official? This year the process has been streamlined and made more user friendly for those who would like to become an official. You will need to take the online course (click on the link below). This link will take you to the training videos, once those videos are completed there will be a test at the end. You are able to complete this in the comfort of your own home 🙂. We are asking that everyone who would like to be an official complete the training by June 6th.

As a thank you and token of appreciation at the end of the swim season if you have covered 6 out 8 Volunteer shifts as an official we will give you $50. (You are also welcome to cover all 8 shifts as an official 🙂)
If you have any questions please don't hesitate to contact us.

Thank you, 
Erin Abbott
