Swimposium and House of Delegates
This year's OSCA and HOD meetings will be held at Newberg high school October 5-7. On Friday there is a Safety Training for Swim Coaches class. On Saturday we are offering a Meet Directors Workshop that is free for anybody to attend. Also on Saturday OSCA will be hosting the coaches clinic. Sue Chen from Nations Capital Swim Club and Mark Sowa fro the University of Idaho will be presenting. Please note the deadlines for the clinics and certifications.
As a reminder every club needs to send a coach to the OSCA meeting Saturday at 7pm and a representative to the HOD meeting on Sunday at 9am.
There are several Stroke and Turn clinics being offered for anyone interested in becoming an official. They can all be found under the officials tab in "officials news".
