RSL Trained Positions
RSL Trained Positions include: Clerk of Course, Data Coordinator, Head Timer, Referee, Starter and Stroke and Turn Judge. They are not difficult and open to everyone who is interested. These positions are crucial for the team. No meet can be held without trained officials! Our goal is to have as many families as possible trained in at least one of these positions.
Only the Referee, Stroke & Turn Judge and Computer Operator need to attend the in-person briefing. All others can take an online course provided by the RSL. Online Briefings can be found here.
