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.  If your club is hosting a Divisional Champs (B-Champs), it is important that your head official attend the entire training.  Any official, new or returning, is welcome at these sessions.

2012 Returning Officials Training

As in prior years, a "returning officials" session has been scheduled for Tuesday, May 22 6-9pm 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 2011 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 Wednesday May 9 from 7-9pm at the Mill Creek Country Club in Mill Creek.  The instructor will be Bob Keller.  Please let Bob know that you will be attending (email: [email protected]) so he will have enough materials for each attendee.

Thanks for your involvement in support of swimming and let me know if you have any questions.  If you no longer are participating in Midlakes, please let me know and I'll remove you from this distribution list.
