Have Questions About the Rules of Swimming? Email your questions to us and we will do the best we can to answer them!

Officiating is an incredibly rewarding way to meet your family’s working obligation to the club. There is no better way to see a meet or express to your children that you appreciate their commitment to the sport. Despite what you may think, other than the clinic, it requires no more time commitment than any other volunteer position you could do in fulfilling your commitment to the club.

No prior knowledge of swimming is needed to do the job, the training through USA Swimming and Illinois Swimming is fun and thorough. If you are interested in becoming an official, please feel free to contact SCST Officials Director Jack Yetter by email - [email protected]. Illinois Swimming also has excellent information available on their website.

SCST hosts high quality meets and provides many opportunities for our athletes to swim for times that do not require traveling outside of Saint Charles. Last year we hosted 56 sessions at home!  To do this we need to have many certified officials.

Every year many of our officials "retire" as their children graduate high school.  We are always looking for new faces to join us on deck.

For more information, email Jack Yetter @ [email protected].

We hope to see you  on deck!

Officials Reimbursement

It is the policy of SCST not to have the actual costs of officiating prevent anyone from joining our ranks, and therefore the Board has adopted a voluntary reimbursement program for those who wish to participate.

The requirements and the application can be found HERE.
