Posted 1.2.14
All Officials must now have a 2014 USA Swimming non-athlete registration.  If you have not renewed your membership - it is due NOW!   Membership cards for 2014 should have been sent to all registered members.  If you have not received your laminated card for 2014 and want to check whether you are registered - you can go to the Officials Tracking System and review or  print a copy of your 'certification' card.  Your membership expiration, as well as your BGC and APT expiration dates, will be shown on the card. You must have a current registration with BGC and APT - as well as a current Officials Certification - in order to officiate at any sanctioned Middle Atlantic meet.

(new) 9/24/13: Starter/Referee re-certification clinic program
