Stroke and Turn Officials Needed
The Sherwood Y Dragons are well known for their volunteers at swim meets they attend. At these swim meets there is always a need for Stroke and Turn Officials. These officials watch the swimmers for fouls with their strokes and turns during a competition. Their participation is integral to the success of any swim meet. Periodically clinics are taught to certify officials, if you are interested please contact Deb Mandeville at 503.862.4014 for information. Your participation will represent the Sherwood Y Dragons and contribute to the success of the swim meets.
