Lee’s Hill Lightning Families,
The second RSL Training Session is on Thursday night at the Spotsylvania YMCA at 7:00 PM.
PLEASE NOTE: The third training session date has been changed to MONDAY JUNE 6th held at Country Club @ 7:00 p.m.
It is that time of year again, when I need to request your help! Our team had a fantastic group of trained officials last year, but we were very short in some positions. Some of our trained officials from last year are not returning to the team this summer. Hopefully, most of last year’s returning officials will renew, if required this year, but it would be great if we could have many more people trained to help support our team. If you are feeling a bit unsure, I am 100% sure that the officials from last year would love to mentor you! New officials will have the support of seasoned officials.
Here are the six remaining 2016 RSL Training Dates:
- Thu May 26 Spotsylvania YMCA @ 7:00 p.m.
- MONDAY June 6 Country Club @ 7:00 p.m.
- Thu June 9 Salem Fields @ 7:00 p.m.
- Sat June 11 Massad YMCA @ 9:00 a.m.
- Thu June 16 Hampton Oaks @ 7:00 p.m.
- Sat June 18 Fawn Lake @ 9:00 a.m.
NO MAKE UP SESSIONS WILL BE HELD
Volunteers are critical to the running of our swim meets. Competitive swimming requires parents to be actively involved in all aspects of our swim meets. Timers, judges, concessions attendants, announcers, starters, and scorekeepers are a few of the positions which are filled by parent volunteers. Volunteering is a requirement for our team.
Training for particular positions (i.e. starter, stroke and turn judge, referee, head timer, head scorer, and head clerk of course) is available prior to the beginning of our season. These "trained" volunteer positions are not difficult and are essential to running the meets. Each team is required to have trained volunteers - please consider helping your team and learning more about the sport of swimming!
I just received the list from the RSL of qualified and trained officials for the Lee’s Hill Lightning Swim Team. As always we are in desperate need of trained officials!
If you have been trained in the past and need to renew, or have never been trained, please try to attend one of the RSL training sessions.
If you are an active high school swimming official, please be sure to fill out and return the required form to the RSL.
We really need Stroke and Turn Officials and Referees! But anyone wanting to train as a Starter, Head Timer, Head Clerk of Course, or Head Scorer - we always have a need!!!
PLEASE NOTE: All RSL training is free, except new Stroke and Turn Trainees are required to complete the online course at StrokeAndTurn.com and to bring their certificate to training. The swim team will reimburse you for this expense if requested. There are NO “keys” being provided by the RSL this year.

Thank you very much for taking the time to get trained and for volunteering!
