In order to ensure that all meets are officiated in a consistent manner that makes it fair and equitable for all swimmers, we are going to offer retraining/recertification for all officials.
Current VHSL (High School) and USA Swimming (PVS, VA Swimming) are valid certifications for the 2021 Season.Team Reps please collect this information and send me one email with the information for all of the VHSL or USA Swimming Officials on your team. If multiple emails are received from each team or if all officials email me. I am confident that some information or details will fall through the cracks.
Returning Officials-Active during the 2019 season will still have to be recertified
New Officials-Will have to go through the certification process
Shadow an experienced official for at least one meet
Once officials register for a training class they will receive an auto reply with the meeting details.
