YMCA Swim Officials Needed for 2018 YMCA National Championship Meet
A large number of officials are needed to properly handle a meet like YMCA Nationals, with multiple pools and sessions. There is a need for both YMCA Level I and YMCA Level II Officials during Prelims, Finals and Time Trials each day. All officials attending the meet are strongly encouraged to sign up to work at the meet. In order to bring a high degree of consistency to the officiating, officials are asked to work as many sessions as possible, but at least four sessions over the course of the week. Officials working at the Prelims will receive breakfast and lunch in the Hospitality Room.

Anyone wishing to officiate for the swimming events in the meet should complete the application form available on web site http://ymca.ymcaswimminganddiving.org/2018SC

Timers Needed for 2018 YMCA National Championship Meet
It may be necessary to solicit volunteer timers, in which case timing assignments will be made based on the number of athletes entered in the meet by the larger YMCA teams. In such a case, the selected YMCAs will be notified within two days after the Entry Deadline of their assigned timer responsibilities. It will then be the responsibility of the Head Coach or team volunteer coordinator to provide a list of the volunteers to fill the assigned Timer slots at Registration. Volunteer timers will be expected to attend the Officials meeting immediately before the session at which they are timing. If volunteer Timers are requested, to the extent possible, it would be helpful if such volunteers could work more than one session.
Background Check Policy
Each Official and Timer is subject to a background check to be performed by the Championship Meet Committee at no cost to the individual.
