Target Meets - See Here


Judging Course - Opportunities for parents 

In order to run swim meets a variety of volunteers are required amongst which are the Officials, YDSC are required to provide Officials every time we send swimmers to a meet, so it is important we train new official. You do not need to know anything about swimming, or have even swam to go on this course. We have secured the services of Graham Cockhill who is one of Somerset’s senior referee’s to run the course, he is very engaging so you should find the course very interesting and  informative.

This is ideal opportunity for you to support your child at swim meets, get closer to the action rather than being sat in the stalls all day, and have a better understanding of their swimming. It is not onerous and you will find it very rewarding. Once you have completed the course you can do as much or as little Judging as you feel comfortable with, we do not expect you to attend any meets your child is not swimming at, unless you want to, and there is no minimum number meets you need to attend.
