Applications to Officiate at national championship meets
Below are the links to online application forms to officiate at USA Swimming National Championship meets. Applications are generally posted 180 days out. 3-star and above meets will generally close at about 120 days out unless there have not been enough applications received to fully staff the meet. NOTE for the 2019 Pro Swim Series - locations will not be determined until after the USA Swimming Convention so the meet applications will not be posted until October, 2018.
If you do not see a meet listed, either the application for that meet has closed or it has not yet been posted (for meets in the far future). Please check back for updates to the available applications.
Acceptance/non-acceptance letters will be e-mailed shortly after the application closure date.
MEET SERIES (PSS, Summer or Winter Nationals/Jrs, Futures) - note that there are separate applications for every meet in the series. You MUST apply for EACH individual meet you are willing to work at in order to be considered for that meet. When an application requests a meet preference in a series, please indicate the ONE meet in the series you prefer to be selected for. If you have no preference, are willing to work any of the meets in the series, or have no preference, but can only work one of them (for meets scheduled back to back weeks), please indicate these preferences accordingly and with the SAME preference on each application. This does not guarantee you will be selected for the meet you prefer, but it helps the reviewing committee in making selections.
- Example 1 - PSS meet series. You are willing to work in Austin and Santa Clara, but you would prefer to work at Austin. Submit an application for both Austin and Santa Clara, indicate "Austin" as the preferred meet for each application.
- Example 2 - Winter Nationals/Jr Nationals. You are willing to work at Nationals and Jr Nationals East. You prefer to be selected for Nationals. Submit an application for both Nationals and Jr Nationals East and indicate "Nationals" as the preferred meet on each application.
- Example 3 - Winter Nationals/Jr Nationals. You are willing to work at Nationals or either of the Jr Nationals but due to work obligations, you can only work at one of the three. Submit an application for all three (Nationals, Jr East, Jr West) and indicate "can only do one" as the preferred meet on each application.
Before you continue to the application, please make sure you are logged in with your OWN website account and not a spouse's (or other person's) account.
You will notice a feature called "Save and Submit Later." If you are interrupted when filling out the application, or are unsure of your availability, you may click this link and return to your saved form to finish at a later date. Note that your application will not be considered until you click "Submit". Once your form is submitted and accepted by the system, you will not be able to access the application again, so be sure you have entered everything as you want it.
NOTE: If the application module states that you are applying as "Staff", please disregard. Staff means official.
When the form is complete and you click "Submit", you will receive an email confirmation receipt. Make sure you put your correct email address on the application form.
If you encounter any difficulty or have any questions, contact Gina Mensay.
