ANNOUNCED JUNE 3, 2020: Given the multiple months lost on deck/in the water due to COVID-19 and the future (yet to be determined) restrictions on social distancing on deck, the Illinois Officials Committee has reduced the required number of sessions for all levels of Officials. For 2020 only, we’re reducing the required sessions to the minimum currently allowed by USA Swimming. Please keep in mind, if the national requirements change, then we will follow the new national standard. Currently, the USA Swimming session requirements are:
Stroke and Turn – 4 sessions
Admin – 4 sessions
Starter – 4 sessions at that position
Referee – 6 sessions
