YMCA Officials become certified through either a Level I course or a Level II clinic taken at an available location. Volunteers interested in becoming an official take one workshop course and then an online open book test which may be taken at home. At the beginning of the season a list of upcoming course locations will be made available on the website. The course focuses on events, procedures and the duties and responsibilities of the officials prior to, during, and after the meet. A score of 80 percent must be achieved on a take home test in order to achieve certification.
