The majority of points are earned by hosting swim meets. There is some other work required that's not related to meets like silent auction planning, squad parent, and other ad hoc committees. As these opportunities become available throughout the year members will be notified.
See the Point Opportunities document for a list of positions and the points earned for each position.
How do I sign up for officiating?
When we are hosting a meet you will receive an email letting you know that the job sign up will open on a certain date and time. When the sign up is open you will log into your account and view the sign up on our home page under events. You just click on job sign up and pick a job that you are qualified to do. There are some jobs you don't require a qualification course to do and they are hospitality, heat sheet sales, access gate, medals and awards, heat sheet prep, meet set up, meet take down & video camera operation.
You may have the opportunity to commit your time for non-hosted meets (a meet not hosted by Cascade) based on the needs of the host-club. Points for non-hosted meets are worth half as compared to Cascade hosted meets.
If there is a request from another club for officials, you will receive an email from the Cascade Office. You may also reach out to the officials coordinator for a non-hosted meet to inquire about volunteering. Points will only be earned for jobs completed. It is completely at the hosting club's discretion whether you are posted to a job. You will know if you have been posted by checking their meet officials roster.
If you volunteer for a non-hosed meet ensure you communicate that your from the Cascade Swim Club. The Officials coordinator, from the host club will provide the list to the Cascade Club officials coordinator and we will credit your account with the point(s).
