Get Trained as an NVSL Official

Heidi Gallacher

Are you not getting enough respect from your kids?  Wish they would just listen to you, every once in awhile?  A short-term fix is to join the HRA staff of NVSL Certified Officials.  We specifically need people who are qualified to serve as Stroke & Turn Judges.  The steps are simple:

- Attend one of the NVSL In-Person Training sessions (see below)

- Notify Heidi the Team Rep (TM) that you have attended

- Pair with an experienced Stroke & Turn Judge at a few B Meets, then...

- Work on your own at a few B Meets, then...

- Work on your own at an A Meet

- Recertify with the NVSL every 2 years

- Bask in the immense gratitude of the Team Rep, the Swim Team Committee, and all other parents

 

Note: the June 12th NVSL Stroke & Turn Clinic will be held at our very own HOLMES RUN POOL, so this is a wonderful opportunity to get trained in a familiar environment with other HRA volunteers (but also meet a number of volunteers from across the League)
