Becoming an Official
Volunteering to become a Meet Official is a great way to become involved in our team. As a meet official, you will be responsible for helping insure the integrity of the sport of swimming while filling a vital role in our organization.
Four Reasons to Become an Official
- You’ll be working with the greatest group of volunteers in all sports.
- You’ll be close to the action. The bleachers aren’t comfortable anyway!
- It’s a great way to meet future Olympians—unless you already have one in your home.
- Great food in hospitality room at meets!
Contact a KKW Coach or the Meet Director to begin this incredible and valuable service for your team.
Steps will include:
- Registering as a non-athlete member of USA Swimming.
- Successfully pass a background check through USA Swimming.
- Attend a local clinic.
- Take an official’s test available online.
- Apprentice to get on the job training at local sanctioned meets and time trials.
- Then … have fun!
