Hello Buckeye Parents, I am Will Indest, a fellow Buckeye parent, and a 7-year volunteer official for USA Swimming and Ohio Swimming. Ever wondered what it would take to get out of those uncomfortable bleachers and get on the pool deck near the action. Consider becoming an official. No prior swimming or officiating experience required. In fact most officials were not swimmers themselves.
The steps are straight forward and can be found here: https://www.teamunify.com/czohlsc/UserFiles/File/Officials/Become%20a%20USA%20Swimming%20Official%20OSI.pdf. Most importantly, the required clinic is coming soon on Sunday, October 8th at 1PM at the Carriage Place Community Center at 4900 Sawmill Road, Columbus 43235.
Any questions, call or write me at 614.288.7003 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Come join us on deck and help us run the best meets so our kids can get their best times, (and our families can get to the next thing on time.)
Parents that officiate will have their booster fundraising requirement waived.
