Swim Official | Certified Training Req'd

Step up your volunteer game and earn points while you train to be a Midlakes Swim Official. Attend the required two-hour training and then “scribe” for a seasoned official while you learn to judge the legality of swim strokes.

2019 Midlakes Official Training Schedule

  • Head Referee (with enough experience)
  • Starter (requires one additional training)
  • Stroke & Turn Official
  • Meet Manager / Scorekeeper
  • Relay Take-off or Exchange Judge

MEET MANAGER / SCOREKEEPER | 23 POINTS | ALL HOME MEETS

This is a great job for someone with tech savvy. And it’s an exciting year to start, as we are rolling out a new timing and scoring app that will cut the hands-on time for this position in half compared to seasons past! (No more manual entry of all the times or DQs will be necessary!)

We require a volunteer (or two!) dedicated to being at every home meet and work the entirety of the meet, including the Duck Classic for training. If we can get two people trained, you could coordinate off days among yourselves, as long as we have meet coverage. Our home meets cannot run without this most important position trained and filled!

Generally, please plan to arrive at home meets at 4 PM to integrate the event line-ups as supplied by the two teams so we are ready to begin on time. Output the Heat Sheets for posting, print out swimmer event slips (if needed), verify the scoring, print out labels for ribbon winners. You will be trained by the best! Mike Hayes, our volunteer in this position for the past 9 years will make himself available to help train you at the Duck Classic. There may be online training for the Swimmingly App; details will follow.
