RSTA Training Dates Set

Officials' and Scorers' Training Dates Here

RHvsGlade OfficialsReston Swim Team Association is dependent on its volunteers. A successful swim meet requires each of our parents to be actively involved in some aspect of the meet. Timers, judges, concessions attendants, announcers, starters, and scorekeepers are a few of the positions which are filled by parent volunteers. But, there is one role that can be difficult to fill... the Official!

Your team needs you! Because each meet is a competition between two teams, we need OfficialsOfficials are the people in white! They are responsible for ensuring that the rules of swimming are upheld and that all swimmers have the opportunity to compete fairly in whatever events they swim. At any meet there are a range of different officials including: referee, starter, and judges (stroke and turns). We need at least 10 officials around the pool to run a meet! So, each team needs a good sized group of Officials it can call on.

Your child will be happy too! As a swimming parent, you will spend a lot of time at the pool each Saturday. You might as well have something to do! The Officials have a great opportunity to: get a close-up view of the action, be involved in decisions, and be active while their child participates in their events and all the extra-curricula activities that makes up a swim meet. 

You do not need any specific qualification or experience to start the process of becoming an official. Ideally, each team will have one or two new parents join its Officials group each year. This way, the league has a continuous feed of trained Officials entering the ranks as retiring Officials leave the league.

Please consider training for these critical volunteer roles. Please keep checking for 2018 training dates.
