Dive Job Descriptions

 

 

Dive Meet Jobs

Table Workers: This is a job for someone who likes to work with numbers. A side benefit is you get a great seat; refreshments, (at least at home meets) and you meet people from other teams. There are several jobs at the table. Most jobs include adding and double-checking someone elses adding.  Calculators and erasers will be available.  We will train you.  Time required: half a meet.

 

Ribbon Writer:  Records scores on labels provided and attaches the labels to provided ribbons. Time required: half a meet.

 

Judge: this gives you the best seat in the house!  Judges watch each dive and give a corresponding score.  There are 5 judges at each meet.  The high and low score are tossed out and the middle 3 are used for the final score. This is not as scary as it sounds. We attempt to provide shade and refreshments.  This requires a 2-hour training and certification is valid for three years.  As a new Judge we will start you out on the younger divers and move you up, as you feel comfortable.  Time required: half a meet.

 

Judge and Referee Training: This requires attending a two hour training session. You will learn how to score the divers and the rules.  Once completed, the training is good for three years. We generally start new judges with the younger divers.  Referee training is a bit of additional time at the training.  New Referees are welcome to sit with experienced referees for training during the season. Time required: 2 hours to 2 ½ hours.
