USA Swimming Stroke & Turn Officials Training 
(attend from the comfort of your own home)
Choose Just one date:
Monday, May 7th   7:00pm - 9:30pm
Saturday, June 9th   2:00pm - 4:30pm
 
This web-based, interactive, online Stroke & Turn Officials Class is great way for individuals to learn the rules of the sport of USA swimming. Please join Clarice Wasmuth, Dynamo's own award-winning Meet Official (see article below) and USA Trainer as she goes over USA Officials, how to become one, and the rules of all four strokes and the next steps in becoming a USA S & T Official. 
 
The benefits of becoming a USA Official are numerous: 
- Satisfy volunteer hours requirement for your home club
- Gain a better understanding of your child's sport
- The meets go by much faster when you are volunteering at them
- It's the best spot on the pool deck for watching everyone swim
- Reserved parking at most meets (and usually free parking at Tech)
- Free meals at meets 
- Free heat sheets 
- Write off expenses (since all USA Officials are volunteers), including hotel cost at a travel meet your child goes to if you work as an Official at that meet. 
 
Becoming a USA Official is a wonderful way to give back to a sport and team that gives all our children lifelong skills both in and out of the water.  
Please RSVP to Clarice Wasmuth at  cwasmuth@comcast.net if you can attend.
