Sign Up to Be an AGUA Official
One of the most critical parts of running a high-quality swim meet is having a team of certified and experienced officials. AGUA is fortunate enough to have such a great team of officials made up of AGUA parents – past and present.

Please help us maintain the tradition of staffing our meets with AGUA officials by getting certified. This is a terrific way to contribute to the team while also learning more about swimming.

If you are interested in hearing more about the certification process, please click here or contact AGUA meet referees Rachel Skaistis or Sharon Greenberg. It is an incredibly rewarding position that makes meets fly by!
