Parent Training in Rules of Swimming and be a Swim Official - TUE 6/02/15

All Welch Parents you are cordially invited to come out RAIN OR SHINE 6:30 PM on TUESDAY, June 2 to the Penns Valley Penguin Millheim Pool located at Soldiers and Sailors Memorial Park in Millheim for an introductory and very informative course about the stroke and turn rules and officiating CPSL swim meets.  You don't have to be a current or former swimmer.

This approximately 90 minute course will help you better understand the stroke and turn rules that your children perform at each practice and league meet.  Furthermore, every swim meet needs more swim officials.  The Welch Sharks Swim Team and the other league teams can always use the help of additional officials to help our meets run fast and efficient.  Thanks.
