All USA Swimming certified officials willing to volunteer should fill out and submit the electronic Application to Officiate found on the Ohio Swimming website JO Event page.
This meet will be an Officials Qualifying meet for certification at the N2 and N3 initial levels and for N2 and N3 re-certifications (QM). Officials wishing to be evaluated should indicate that in the Application to Officiate form available on the Ohio Swimming website JO Event page.
Note: To be evaluated for certification or re-certification at any level, an official must work at least 4 sessions at the meet, even if the evaluation requirement is for only 2 or 3 sessions in a specific position.
Special notice to those interested in obtaining National Certification as a Chief Judge, Starter, or Referee: First priority for assigned positions will be given to those seeking certification as well as a commitment to working all sessions of the meet. This better serves the athletes and provides a consistent training experience. Preference will also be given to those seeking either an N2 or N3 Evaluation. If the evaluation is for “Recertification”, then one must work the minimum number of sessions in each position in which he/she is recertifying. For specific requirements, refer to the USA Swimming website, in the Volunteers Section under Officials Certification.

All protests must be submitted in writing within 30 minutes following the contested race to the Meet Referee or their designee.
Scratch Procedures:
- A swimmer who officially scratches from an individual event shall not have that event count towards their maximum number of events for the meet or for that day.
- The scratch deadline for Preliminary Events and Timed Final Events will be 30 minutes prior to the start of the session where the individual or relay is contesting the event.
Scratching from Prelims:
• Any swimmer not appearing for an individual preliminary event, without officially scratching per meet guidelines, shall not be penalized; however, that event will be counted against their 7 event maximum for the meet and their 3 event per day maximum.
• Any relay team that fails to appear for a pre-seeded relay event shall not be penalized.
Scratching from Finals:
• Any swimmer qualifying for a consolation or championship final in an individual event who fails to compete in said final shall be barred from his/her next individual event, except as noted in ‘Exception for Failure to Compete’ below. A declared false start under 101.1.3F or deliberate delay of meet under 101.1.5 is not permitted and will be regarded as a failure to compete.
• In the event of withdrawal or barring of a swimmer from competition the Referee shall fill the consolation or championship final, when possible, with the next qualified swimmer(s). First and second alternates shall be announced along with the final qualifiers. The alternates shall not be penalized if unavailable to compete in the finals.
• Where consolation finals have not been swum and a barring or withdrawal is known to the Referee, the Referee shall reseed the consolation and championship final, if necessary, to insert the alternate(s) in the appropriate lane(s), filling all lanes in the final.
• If the consolation final has already been contested, the championship final shall be swum without reseeding for the empty lanes(s).
• Failure to scratch consolation or championship finals according to the rules above shall result in a $50.00 penalty fee per event against the swimmer if the event is his/her last event of the meet. The penalty fee shall be billed to the club and paid to the host group member.
Exception for Failure to Compete:
No penalty shall apply for failure to withdraw or compete in an individual event if:
• The Referee is notified in the event of illness or injury and accepts the proof thereof.
• A swimmer qualifying for a consolation or championship final race based upon the results of the preliminaries notifies the Clerk of Course within thirty (30) minutes after the announcement of qualifiers for that race that they may not intend to compete and further declares their final intentions within thirty (30) minutes following their last individual preliminary event.
• It is determined by the Referee that failure to compete is caused by circumstances beyond the control of the swimmer.
Relays and Relay
Check-In Procedures:
1. All relays are conducted on a timed final basis. Entry forms for all relays will be included in the Team packets and must be turned in prior to the relay forms deadline in order to be seeded.
