Officiating at Sectional and Zone Meets

As a general reminder, if a Speedo Championship Sectional Meet is to offer National Championship officiating opportunities, the Sectional Meet Referee will be determined by the Zone Official's Chair with input from the Meet Host and the Zone LSC Official Chairs.

Once the Meet Referee has been determined, the remaining assigned team members (administrative referee, deck referees, starters, and chief judges) will be determined by the Meet Referee, with the concurrence of the Zone Official's Chair.

In case there is any confusion, I wanted to clarify a few items about officiating at Sectionals:

To work a sectional meet, you do NOT need to be evaluated for an N2 or N3 position; however, that opportunity is normally available at this meet, if you want it.

  1. For a sectional meets you are not required to turn in an application to officiate prior to the deadline to work as a stroke and turn judge.  Only those who wish to be assigned as an Admin Ref, Deck Ref, Starter or Chief Judge need to send in the application prior to the deadline. 
  2. We also understand that a stroke and turn official may not know which sessions he/she will be able to work. However, if you do know, it would be helpful to let the meet referee know in advance.  Accordingly, we would appreciate you filling out an application and indicate which sessions you can work.

If you have any questions regarding officiating at Southern Zone meets please contact me:
