Officials Positioning on Pool Decks

2018-2019

Use of more than 4 S&T officials.

  1. Coaches are concerned that swimmers are being disqualified at Districts and States for stroke violations that have not been called during the dual meet season because only 4 S&T officials are used at dual meets but at higher level meets a larger complement of officials are used.

  2. During dual meets, S&T judges mainly work from the side of the pool and 2 officials cover 3 lanes from end to end.

  3. At larger meets, turn judges are assigned at both ends observing 1 or 2 lanes, and there are multiple judges on the sides.

    • Swimmers are being observed from different vantages than dual meets.

    • Swimmers are being observed continuously as compared to dual meets.

  4. Coaches have requested that more S&T officials be used at dual meets so that stroke violations that have been missed during the dual meet season but are observed during championship meets will not be missed

  5. The following is good guidance on assignment of officials. This applies whether the officials rotate or remain in the same position for the entire meet. This does not include assignments for Relay Takeoffs - to be determined by the Referee
