Gulf Gold Medal Clinic
Clinics for Officials / Registrars / Meet Directors
Gulf Swimming is providing a unique training opportunity this year with Hy-tek representatives and our registrar, Annette Leach. This is an excellent clinic for ALL Meet Directors and team registrars. This is your chance to get all your questions answered about creating meet files using Meet Manager from Hy-tek Representatives.
We ask that you send ONE representatives from each team to the Meet Manger Training and the Team Registrar’s clinics. It is REQUIRED for NEW TEAMS.

Lunch will be served following the Administrative Officials Clinic but we need you to pre-register. Lunch is open to all attendees of the AO Clinic and the upcoming Meet Manager training session. Use the links below to register for a workshop. If you have already signed up for the Administrative Officials Clinic on the Officials webpage, you do not need to sign up again.
If you are attending more than one session, please sign-up for EACH session. If you have any questions, please contact Darcey Baron with Gulf Swimming at Darcey.firstname.lastname@example.org.
New Officials Needed
Did you know that the USA Swimming Officials that run the meets your swimmers attend are all just parent volunteers? Did you also know that regardless of which team is hosting it would really help our swimmers if there were officials representing all teams attending helping to run the meet? There is no better way to get involved with your child’s chosen sport than to become an official. Please see the flyer HERE and contact Andrea Walin at email@example.com with any questions or concerns!

Non-Athlete 2017 "Fillable" Form
Note for "Fillable" pdf files: Windows 10 will use Edge as the default program for opening all pdf files. Being a browser/reader, Edge doesn’t have editing features and the fillable function of the pdf document will appear not to work. Open fillable pdf files with either Google Chrome or Adobe Acrobat (Internet Explorer 10 and older will work too), then the fillable features will work. Adobe Reader will have the same problem as Edge.
