Parents who would like to become officials can go to www.vhsl.org and go to the "whistle" section. They must register as a member. If they are already registered as a stroke and turn judge as a USA official, it looks like they don't have to take an exam, but they must register. If there are any fees, they can save the receipt and get reimbursed. We can use starters, stroke and turn judges, and referees. Thank you.
We must have these postions filled to run a meet.
