Stroke and turn clinic Information – the is for parents who are interested in serving as a stroke and turn judge this season

Below are the dates for the officials Clinics. A few reminders:


  • Coaches, You must have a certified Starter and Deck referee for each meet. It is recommended that these people have worked as stroke and turn previously.
  • Starters and Deck Referees must go to the clinic, join the officials association ($40), and take an open book test
  • You must attend a clinic to officiate unless you are USA swimming certified. Being an official in prior years, or summer league doesn’t’ count.
  • Joining the association and taking the test are done through Arbiter I will have instructions at the clinic.
  • Anyone wishing to work the state championship for stroke and turn must join the association and take the test

8/25 Virtual Starter and Deck Referee Clinic. Start time 7pm. This clinic typically runs about an hour, however I will cover some suggestions for running a meet while adhering to the social distancing requirements. I have not received any requirements from the League office. So these suggestions are things I have picked up from meetings I have attended for USA swimming. It is possible my suggestions are more stringent or do not comply with the SCHSL standard, I am sorry but nothing has been communicated to me. The zoom link is:
