Why become an official?

As a parent of a swimmer you have the opportunity to be involved with your child and their sport in various ways. One very instrumental way is by being trained, certified, and working as an Official. Officials are present at all competitions to implement the technical rules of swimming and to ensure that the competition is fair and equitable to everyone. Being an official also gives you a chance to be involved and learn more about the sport of swimming.

 

Other added benefits of becoming an official are:

  • Fulfill your volunteer obligations. 
  • Get closer to the action; know what’s happening on deck with the “best seat” at the pool.
  • Receive free admission and great hospitality during sessions officiated.
