The Marlins Are Looking For Officials!


The Montrose Marlins are currently looking for parents to officiate at meets!  This is a great way to get involved and see all the action up close and personal.  Not only is it fun, but you could earn free meet fees for your swimmers by officiating at meets on the Western Slope! The Montrose Marlins will waive meet fees for 2 swimmers if you officiate at least three sessions of a meet. Meet fees are paid upfront, and then your swim account will be credited for the meet fees after the meet.

The Western Slope League is offering a New Officials Clinic at Montrose High School Library on Saturday June 1st at 12pm.  Training session will last no later than 4:00pm.

Below, you'll find the six necessary steps to become an official. Please note that registration with USA Swimming and the background check are paid by the Marlins.
