Killer Whales Need Stroke n Turn judges

Happy Wednesday,

It takes a village to run a summer swim team.  Do you realize our season is only EIGHT weeks this year ?   8 weeks and 2 days to be exact  so we have a LOT of fun to pack into such a short space.

Parent Volunteers are crucial to our events and everyone does need to volunteer to help out.   You can see open positions on www.kfswimteam.com

We currently are in need of some stoke n turn judges.   ESSENTIAL people to run our meets.   To be a stoke n turn judge you do need to have some knowledge of the sport and you need to complete the certification process.   Best part is that there is a FREE class you can take to get you ready.    When we have a couple of extra people you can trade off and only work 1/2 of the meet.  It's  an awesome view of the swimming action.    The dates are below -  please let me and/ or Lyra  know if you can help with this and which clinic you will attend.

YOU MUST RECERTIFY EACH YEAR - so if you did it before and you are going to do it again - you must Recertify and let me / Lyra know. 

Starter  - Paul Quinlan stepped up last year and volunteered to be our STARTER  and is stepping up again this year - apparently he held up ok - smile.  Thank YOU Paul.    We would love to have a back up starter to fill in if Paul is away.   You MUST have swimming knowledge and be focused  and be undistracted to do this job.  Please reach out to me or Lyra if you have an interest as you MUST attend the clinic that is only offered next week
