2023 RSL Training
Summer is fast approaching and swim season will be here before we know it. As you well know, or will soon learn (if this is your first season), meets take the whole team to be successful and that includes the parents. Each meet requires that we have trained individuals to act as referee, starter, clerk of the course, head timer, scorekeeper and data operators, and stroke and turn judges.
This year, to make things easier, the RSL has moved all training online. It can be accessed here - https://rsl.swimtopia.com/training We ask that one individual from each family completes at least one training course. There is no fee for any, with the exception of stroke and turn, but we do reimburse that at the end of the season if you officiate at least 4 meet halves. We recognize that there are a number of positions that do not require training; however, if we do not meet the number of trained officials we need, the meet cannot happen. We are always looking for new and returning stroke and turn judges, as we need 4 per meet.
Each training module consists of a video explanation of the position, it’s requirements, and the role that individual plays within the meet. It goes through the expectations and rules and has periodic questions to assess knowledge intake. Most seem to take about 30 minutes, with the exception of stroke and turn and scorekeeper, which run longer.
Once you have completed the training, please scroll further down the page and complete the required RSL officials registration form. We thank you in advance and look forward to working with everyone to make this a successful season. If you have any questions, please feel free to ask.
