If you are interested in becoming an official. Please reach out to the LCST Barracuda Head Official Dan Bunge at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Remember that becoming an official fulfills your family volunteer requirements for the season! We look forward to seeing you on deck!!
A Note from Clear Creek Swim League (CCSL) Officials Chair: Fred Bogar
CCSL has two levels of certification, Stroke/Turn and Starter/Referee. There are two tests. You are only required to complete the test for your desired certification. The Starter/Referee test includes Stroke/Turn questions so it is inclusive.
The material I am using is from USA Swimming and Gulf Swimming. The videos are excellent and give visual examples of legal and illegal technique. Stroke/Turn and Starter have both a Powerpoint and Manual. The manual gives more detail to the bullet points on the slides.
The Deck Referee Powerpoint is a good review of how to run the deck. Most teams won't have enough people to have a Chief Judge so all references to their responsibilities fall on the Deck Referee.
The Stroke/Turn Situations and Resolutions is included to give you an idea how the rules are applied. It is very helpful in relating the rulebook to the pool. I recommend everyone read it as well.
My email is at the top of the page. Feel free to drop me a line if you have any questions. I hope to see you on deck soon!
