The swim officials are regulated by USA Swimming and are part of the team. It is a volunteer position, however, the expenses incurred in relation to officiating are tax deductible. Unlike the other volunteer positions there is some training and testing involved, but knowing the rules takes your understanding and enjoyment of the sport to a much higher level. Beside that, you get access to the best seat in the house, the pool deck!
