Midlakes Officials Training Schedule

The following are the dates, times and locations for this year's officials trainings (you only need to pick one to attend).  Keep in mind that the first 2 hours are for everyone, the 3rd hour is for referees/starters.

2011 Returning Officials Training

Again this year, based on feedback from officials, a "returning officials" session has been scheduled for Wednesday, May 18 6-8pm Newport Hills (Clubhouse).

Please note, this session is only for:

  • experienced Midlakes officials

  • those who have attended the officials training at least once in the last 2 years.

If an individual has not attended in the last 2 years (but has officiated during the 2010 season), they may attend with notification to me from their club's coach or volunteer coordinator attesting to their participation as an official.  If you have any questions about your status, please contact me so I can confirm that you are on the list.

USA Swimming Officials Training

If you have thought about becoming a certified official with USA Swimming, here is your chance.  A Stroke & Turn officials clinic will be held Tuesday, June 7 from 7-9pm at Newport Hills Swim & Tennis Club.  The instructor will be Teri White.  Please let Teri know that you will be attending (email: [email protected]) so she will have enough materials for each attendee.

Thanks for your involvement in support of swimming and let me know if you have any questions.
