Rule update (posted in 2016)

USA swimming changed the rule on Kinesio Tape a short time ago but after all Midlakes training was held.  Since the board did not vote on the change prior to the season starting, the Midlakes rule stays the same for 2016 and beyond.  Tape is allowed with an accompanied doctors note.

Classroom Training:

These training sessions will be like in years past with a few new wrinkles.   This training is for new and returning officials who want more of a book refresher course.

Deck Training:

We will spend the first part of the session covering; rules, deck setup, officials position, safety, etc. then assist in time trials for "real life" experience.

If your club knows of new officials joining this season, please have them send their information to communication@midlakesswimleague.org.

Thanks for your involvement in support of swimming.
