In order to officiate in the
CSA regularly scheduled dual meets, you must attend a CSA 2015 Training
a current USAS certification
as a Stroke & Turn judge, Starter or Referee.
As a reminder, all Stroke & Turn Judges are required to
complete one of the CSA offered options for that position, unless already certified as a USA Swimming Judge.
All Referees and Starters are required to attend the CSA training sesison for Referee & Starter unless USA Swimming
certified in that position. Additionally, all Referees must either be USA Swimming certified Judges, or complete one
of the CSA Stroke & Turn training options, in the current year, in order to preside as a Referee at a CSA meet.
All officials will be certified by the CSA Vice President - Rules based on these training requirements and participation.
If you are certifying as a Stroke & Turn judge for the first time, we
strongly recommend that each new official apprentice alongside a seasoned
CSA official for the first two meets.
All CSA teams are required to provide
for Day One (Thursday) of CSA Championship Meet. Officials for Day Two
and Day Three
of the CSA Championship meet must be USAS certified.
