Technical Officials officiate at swimming meets conducted by Clubs, Areas, State and National Bodies. A typical swimming meet needs a lot of officials – at least 40 in an eight lane pool.
Being an official is an excellent way of supporting the swimmers and it also has some fringe benefits! Officials have one of the best seats in the house and officials at Area, State and National meets can also receive an official's shirt.
If you volunteer before the meet and get your name on the roster, you will normally have free pool entry. You will receive a complimentary program, and lunch and snacks are usually provided at full day meets.
