Dear Swim Colleagues,
We are planning on having an in-person YMCA Swim Official Training at the PenBay Y on Saturday, October 29. Check-in begins at 7:30 am, and the course will begin promptly at 8.
Both Level 1 and Level 2 trainings will be held. There is a minimum of 10 participants needed to hold the training, and will be capped at 25. The trainings should wrap up at about 1:00, and are appropriate for both new and re-certifying officials.
The course fee is $30.00, and certification is valid for 3 years.
Please remember that if you are moving from a Level 1 to a Level 2, or recertifying as a Level 2, there are specific requirements (active certification, time served, meet sessions worked) that must be met in order to certify. If you are in this group, and would like to attend the training, please send me a copy of your current certification and a record of your meet sessions worked since then.
If you are unsure of the requirements to become an official or to recertify, you can find them in the participant guide from your previous training, as well as on the National Y Competitive Swim site, under the “Officials” tab (Swim Officials Training Certification Levels, (https://www.teamunify.com/yusa/UserFiles/File/YMCA%20Swim%20Officials%20Courses%20Descriptions.pdf ). You can obtain a copy of your current certification on your LCDC account.
Pre-registration and pre-payment are required. No walk-in participants will be accepted.
Please reach out to me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org, if you are interested in attending, have any further questions, or for information on registration and payment. I may also be reached at 207-619-0538.
The course is created as a private class and participants will be provided the link after the requirements have been submitted nd reviewed.
Please identify the Y you are associated with, the course you need to attend, whether you are a new official at Level 1 or Level 2, acknowledgement of being at least 21 years old, and your current certification and record of meets worked if appropriate.
