 Becoming an LESI Official

Lake Erie Swimming is looking for people to join the ranks of weekend swim warriors as USA officials. It’s a great crew, the white shirt/navy shorts is flattering for everyone, and the view is much better than up in the stands! We won’t throw you in the deep end, but we provide training so you feel comfortable with the job. You’ll get a chance to share in the glory of (or at least get splashed by) some really fast swimming.
