JUDGES/STARTER/REFEREE TRAINING CLASS

It's hard to believe, we are half way through our season of meets...and Conference Championships are just a little over 4 weeks away!

We need ALL families to volunteer between the two Conference meets. If you plan on volunteering for any of the Judging positions or Starter/Referee, you MUST have a valid certification. The only way to update your certification is to attend one of these training classes being offered. Certifications are only valid for 2 years and then must be renewed.

Villa Park will be running a Judge class that will be followed by a starter/referee class.  It will be held on Monday June 26th at 7:00 pm at the Iowa Community Center.  Address is 338 N. Iowa Ave, Villa Park in Room 9.

The contact person is Stacey Fox, foxfamily98@gmail.com and the phone number is 708-921-0050

The information is also listed on the DSDC website.

IMPORTANT VOLUNTEER REQUEST

 

As many of you know, two key volunteer positions at swim meets are the Referee and Starter. Besides myself, the team has only 2 other certified individuals capable of working those positions. This Saturday, one of those 2 other certified volunteers is not available to work. As we scramble to get volunteers at many of the other needed positions, we need some volunteers to move up from timing to judging and judges to move up to referee and starter. This requires taking those specific training classes I have posted over the last few weeks. 

For the first time in the conference, timing does not require a training class, so EVERYONE can time. Those that have timed for one swim season, are eligible to take the judging training class for certification as a judge. And the judges that have judged for one swim season, are eligible to be a referee/starter, after having taken a referee/starter training class. 

As the team graduates swimmers, parents too move on beyond the team. Those that have been judges, referee and starters are gone. The team counts on the many volunteers that have just timed every season to move up to other positions so we have plenty of depth in case of situations like Saturday when we have just two (including myself) people certified to volunteer as a referee/starter. 

I hope many of you have taken advantage of the training classes offered. If so, please let me know what new certification you have trained for this year. The team is desparate for new judges, referees and starters. Our depth in those volunteer poisitions are very thin. Please give serious thought to stepping up your training to those positions. 

THANK YOU!
