Officiating

OTTSC needs your support for locally run OTTSC Swim meets as it takes approximately 30 Officials to run a swim meet. If you are not qualified as an Official, it is encouraged you to take some of the free training provided. This will enable OTTSC to run its own meets without having to request Officials from other clubs. If you are interested in becoming a Referee, we are more than happy to help you advance and get the experience you require.

Positions that are required to run a swim meet are:

  • Referee
  • Starter
  • Chief Finish Judge
  • Recorder Scorer
  • Stroke & Turn Judges
  • Chief Time Keeper
  • Timekeeper

Although not required, OTTSC will sometimes help out officiating at other clubs’ swim meets. It shows great sportsmanship and team spirit!

If you have questions or are interested in helping out, please contact the coaches or the OTTSC Chief Officials Chair, John Weare
