Officials Uniform

Even though all officials are volunteers, we are trying to provide a professional atmosphere for the swimmers.  Each swimmer has worked hard to compete at the meets.  We would like to show them the courtesy of dressing in an appropriate manner.  Just like other sports, the official at each meet is part of a team, so we should dress like a team.  In San Diego Imperial, our uniform is navy bottom and a white top.  The bottom can be pants, a skirt/skort, or shorts.  Please no denim.  The top should be a collared, white polo shirt.  The LSC has very nice, subsidized shirts for sale at the swim office for $10.  You are not required to wear this shirt, but it is quite a bargain for a high quality shirt.  Shoes should be white.  The amount of non-white on the shoe can be a factor at other LSC’s, but it is not a major concern for us.

All of the pools in our LSC are outdoors.  That means we are subject to everything that Mother Nature has to throw at us.  The only weather that stops a swim meet is lightning.  High winds and rain do not stop a swim meet.  As such, officials may wear whatever is required to stay comfortable during the meet.

The LSC subsidizes some officials clothing.  Here is the current price list (July 2017)

  • White Short Sleeve Polo – $10
  • White Long Sleve Polo – $15
  • Blue Oxford – $20
  • White or Navy Baseball Caps – $5

The LSC will occasionally special order rain jackets

  • Subsidized cost – $35 for jacket
  • Optional name embroidery cost – $5 for one name, $7 for two names
  • Link for ordering a jacket
