Instructions and Guidelines
Share the following with coaches and officials during a pre-meet briefing.
Give meet volunteers the information they need to do a good job and help those around them be safe. Often, a few experienced people run swim meets helped by many less experienced volunteers. Using a training agenda enables others with less experience to step up and help out more.
To use, first review the announcements. Delete any which don’t apply to your meet. If needed, add others. Give the sheet to the meet announcer and ask him/her to make the announcements throughout the meet.
Possible Concussion at the Pool?
Concussion Information Sheet
- Utah state law requires the removal of a child participant suspected of sustaining a concussion or a traumatic head injury from all sporting events. It also requires written medical clearance before the child returns to participation. The full text of the bill may be viewed at http://le.utah.gov/~2011/bills/hbillenr/hb0204.pdf
