All Dual Meets, Invitational's and Championships are run by Officials to ensure that all swimmers are following the USA Swimming Stroke and Turn Rules. Officials take a short two hour class to learn the rules for each stroke, individual medley and relays.  There is an additional class to become a Starter for officials who have at least two years experience in officiating stroke and turn.  

If you are a Current YMCA or US Official, please send a copy of your credentials to Bruce Mooney, the officials chairperson  at least two weeks prior to the start of the Swim Season
 and you will be issued a Delmarva Swim Association Badge for officiating in our league.
