Sierra Nevada Officials Information

Sierra Nevada Officials-
We will be holding 3 Officials Clinics for 2020-2021. Given Covid-19, we will be holding these 3 clinics via zoom. Attendance at ONE of the THREE clinics will be mandatory to Officiate for the next year. Everyone is invited and NEW Officials will be able to stay on the call for an additional Q+A session.
Sunday, October 4th at 10-12
Tuesday, October 6th at 6-8
Friday, October 9th at 5-7
You will be receiving an e-mail prior to the clinic with links to the Zoom meeting, application forms, USA Swimming videos, and more.
I'd like to encourage you to log onto USAswimming.org and check out the Officials section with the links that you will need to update your credentials. https://www.usaswimming.org/officials. Please take a look at your deck DeckPass so that you aware of the expiration of your Background Check and APT and your bi-annual recertification testing.
Because we are offering only a few clinic options this year, we encourage you to attend one of these clinics so that you are able to officiate. In October USA swimming is opening sanctioning back up without the month by month action they had been taking, so there may be more meets coming soon.

Bill Rose : what it means to be an Official
Sierra Nevada's Awesome lead CJ team : Stroke Briefing
Dana Covington : State of Swimming / Swimming Opportunities
Niffey Carmody : Officiating Opportunities outside our LSC and off the deck
