PLEASE CHECK YOUR OFFICIALS' CREDENTIALS!
USA SWIMMING REGISTRATION:
Please make sure that you have renewed your USA Swimming membership. They all expire at the end of 2019 and require forms to be filed and a payment to be made by either you or your club. https://form.jotform.com/92455660136155
If you have decided not to continue as an official in 2020, please let me know via email.
Please check to see that your background check is up to date. These all expire at different times.
ATHLETE PROTECTION TRAINING/SAFE SPORT:
Check to see that you have completed your Athletes Protection Test. In the past, they all expired as of December 31st. They are now moving to expiration one year from the last date that you completed the test.
New for this year – ALL officials will now need to complete a concussion training course to be certified.
Links for Concussion Training:
National Federation of State High School Associations Concussion in Sports –
Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Heads Up Concussion in Youth Sports -
These certifications will need to be uploaded to Laura Hartman with USA Swimming registration. If you have registered and not uploaded the forms, please email to Laura at: [email protected]
ALL OF THESE ITEMS MUST BE CURRENT TO BE PERMITTED ON DECK!
Thank you for all the time and energy you have spent to help the swimmers have well run meets!
