The 12 and Under Celebration is coming up on January 17 and 18.  If you are interested in working or mentoring in a level 2 position (i.e. other than Timing and Strokes and Turns), you should be able to sign up now. The Meet Referee is responsible for assigning these jobs and the way to sign up is by using your OSOA.CA account. There are instructions for doing this on the LAC site under the Officials tab. These job requests are not guaranteed so you should make your requests as soon as you can. This is often open weeks in advance of the meet.  

I will be hosting a Timer and a Strokes and Turns clinic prior to the 12 and Under Celebration. If anyone is working toward Level III and would like to teach the Level I Timekeeper and Safety Marshal Clinic, please let me know.  

The next LAC hosted live clinics will not be until April/May. The next Regional Clinics will be in March at Conestoga College.
