    Vienna Woods NEEDS additional officials! 

    • Stoke and Turn, table workers, timers, referee and clerk of course are always in demand.
    • Certain positions (stroke and turn & starter) require certification (just a 2 hour clinic). All others are OJT. But we NEED certified parents to help out on deck.
    • Consider becoming a certified official to support your swimmers and to get the best view of the meet!
    • These jobs are easy to learn - just ask anyone who's already volunteers.
    • Please feel free to contact David Schultz, our Officials' Coordinator, or any of our team reps.
    Officials training is key to a vibrant and successful swim program. Vienna has a long history of quality leadership in NVSL. Please consider some of the below training to continue the Vienna Woods Tradition. Contact Dave Schultz with any questions.
