Become An Official

Are you bored between events at your child’s swim meet? Why not become an official! The advantages of officiating at a meet are:

  • It makes the meet go by much faster since you are doing something instead of just sitting in the stands.
  • You ensure quality officiating by becoming a part of the system.
  • You get to know other parents, volunteers, and coaches and may make new friends as a result.
  • It’s much less crowded on deck and a whole lot cooler.
  • There’s no admission charge and you get a free heat sheet.
  • Your child will think you are cool.
