I wanted to make you all aware of an Official's policy change that will be taking affect 01/01/2018 in regards to session credit for meets that fall outside of USA sanctioned swim meets.
 
These changes were voted on by the Official's committee and approved by our South Texas Board of Directors at the November Board meeting.
 
Starting January 1, 2018 South Texas will give Official's session credit for USA sanctioned or approved swim meets and High School Observed meets only.  In addition, half of the sessions earned towards either apprentice minimum session requirements (10 apprentice sessions) or the 8 sessions we require to stay active as a USA official and have South Texas pay for your annual USAS registration must come from USA sanctioned swim meets only.  
 
High school dual meets, high school invitationals, college meets of any kind, summer league invitationals, etc will no longer qualify for any session credits towards USA swimming.  These will no longer be tracked or entered into OTS.
 
Below is a link to our curent PPGO's that outlines the above change,

11/17/2017 Congratulations to the following officials on their recent promotion to Starter.
 
Joe La Joie
Mike Worley
 
I will be working on renewing your LSC certifications over the next week for those of you asking why your LSC certification still says 12/31/2017.  For those of you that have not registered for 2018 and plan on officiating next year, please get your registration in ASAP.
 
Thanks again for all you do.  
Hope everyone has a safe and Happy Thanksgiving.
