Training Information

Introducing Online Training

Illinois Swimming has streamlined the official training process to our new online learning program. Select your training below. Each is position-specific, so please select the level at which you are training.

If you are signing up for Stroke and Turn, Admin Official, or Starter, you will receive a link in a few days inviting you to an online classroom. These classrooms contain short, interactive videos for you to complete. Please complete them before attending the training.

Each training session is led by an Illinois official experienced at that level. The classes have different lengths (approximately 90 minutes for stroke and turn and admin, 2 hours for starter, and three hours for referees).

Starters will also have a short live meeting on a pool deck prior to doing on-deck training at a meet. 

The 2 hour requirement for training sessions has been reinstated. For all positions other than referee, a training session must last 2 hours. For referees, it must be 3 hours.
