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.

 

12 & UNDER CELEBRATION MEET

Please contact Alex Vanderkam ( email address vanderkam6404@rogers.com ) if you wish to gain valuable experience in any of the senior official positions.  It will be important that you have the clinics for the areas you want to work.  This is a meet where we encourage our homegrown officiating talent an opportunity to climb the ladder.

The meet is being run on Saturday January  8th and 9th of 2011.  There will be 2 sessions - 1 on Saturday with warmup at 2 p.m. and 1 on Sunday with a 7:30 a.m. warmup.

Please contact Alex by Jan 2/11 to ensure you get the experience you request.

Thank you
