Specialized Volunteer Training - Stroke & Turn Official
LAC is in need of AMAZING VOLUNTEERS who would like to become trained Stroke & Turn Officials. We will be hosting a LOT of meets next year, and need at least 50 trained Officials on our team. We currently have about 30.
We will hold a training session for any parents that are interested in becoming a meet official. There is no previous knowledge that you must have to come to the officials training.
The training is 9/8 at the WAC from 9-11. In order to know who will be coming to this training, we ask that you sign up here.
This is the biggest need at LAC and we hope you are willing to step up to the challenge! By becoming an Official, you can expect the following:
- $20 dues credit for every meet session you work
- More availability/flexibility in which session(s) you work (the job signup for Officials doesn’t fill up as quickly as Timers)
- Free shirts – all of our Officials receive white polo shirts to wear while working
- Great food! Officials have access to the Hospitality Room at meets to relax on your breaks and have meals
- Increased knowledge about swimming and meets, which will make you and your swimmer’s experience with the sport infinitely more gratifying
- Camraderie – working as an official is a great way to meet other committed swim parents, it’s a great group of people!
Thank you for your support of your swimmers!
