I am a registered
coach and want to swim open events at a meet. Do I need to join USA
Swimming as an athlete member and pay another
Yes. Refer to 302.1 and
304.2 USA Swimming Rules & Regulations. Every competitor
must register as an athlete. The insurance coverage is different
and the membership fee for each category covers insurance premiums

referees, starters, and stroke and turn judges, serving in an

officials in Illinois Swimming?
Illinois Swimming has
established training levels from Stroke & Turn (Judge),

I have been asked to
time at our meet. Do I need to join USA
No. Current rules do not
require timers to join USA Swimming.
Since I sent proof of
my course work to get a coach card, do you notify me when they need
to be renewed?
No. Coach members are
responsible for maintaining current status of CPR, First Aid and
Safety Training for Swim Coaches. Coaching without current
course certifications jeopardizes USA Swimming insurance coverage
of both club and coach.
What do I do to
transfer my child from one club to another or to another LSC
A transfer form must be
completed before an athlete can swim under a new club name. 120
days must have elapsed before an athlete from a USA Swimming club
can represent a new USA Swimming club. (The 120 days does not apply
to college athletes.) Forms and further information can be obtained
from the ISI office.
