MINOR OFFICIALS – DECEMBER TIME TRIAL
We will be using the same sign-up system for the December time trial as we used for the October time trial. To assist parents in obtaining their strokes and turns qualifications, 12 spots have been allocated for this purpose. If you sign-up for "Stroke and Turns - trainee", you should be in the process of taking or about to take the strokes and turns clinic. During the time trial, one of the experienced strokes and turns parents will be available to help you learn more about the position. This is an excellent opportunity to learn about strokes and turns in a low pressure situation.
The job sign-up for all positions will be turned on later this afternoon.
STROKES AND TURNS
For those of you inspired to take the strokes and turns course after this weekend, please contact Stacey at firstname.lastname@example.org for how to take the course on-line or so she can gauge the interest in having a strokes and turns clinic. If we could get some interest in the next couple of weeks, we could use the December time trial as a place for parents to get some valuable experience in a low pressure situation.
Remember that the real winner in getting your strokes and turns is your swimmer(s)!
