Calling All Stroke & Turn Judges!

Becoming a Stroke & Turn Judge can be rewarding on all levels!  Have you ever wondered exactly what makes a swimmer disqualify (“DQ”) in their race? Or how each swim stroke should be done? Were you a swimmer in summer rec league or higher? Would you enjoy being directly pool side at swim meets? If you answered yes to any of these, or if you just want to, please join the officiating crew.
