*Greatest Need

These roles are vital for a meet to run and the Veterans Park Swim Team needs your help!  Please attend one of these courses to set us up for success. You will not be committed to being an official at every meet but the more officials we have the less we will need to ask the same people to assist. 

Our greatest need to begin a meet is typically Stroke and Turn. For this role, at the clinic, you will go through a video with the instructors to learn all the strokes (Freestyle, Backstroke, Breaststroke, Butterfly as well as the rules for the Individual Medley (IM) and learn the legal disqualifying elements of the stroke/swim events in our league.  After the clinic, for new officials, you will train and shadow one of our current officials for the first couple of meets until you are comfortable on your own.  

Veterans Park and most other teams will buy you lunch at concessions and also provide you with water.   You will be up front and center on the pool deck, able to watch all the action in the water.  

 If you plan to attend one of the clinics, and/or are currently an official please email Team Representative Gwen Arredondo at Guinevere.marie@gmail.com
