Table Worker: There are several jobs at the table – score recorder, degree of difficulty calculator, meet secretary, and ribbon writer. Learning how to be a table worker requires very little time and the job is essential. This quick video provides instructions. [Insert video]. Our team is required to provide three table workers for every meet.
Announcer: We provide an announcer for all home meets. This person gives the name and team of the diver as well as the dive the child is planning to do and its degree of difficulty. Volunteers must be comfortable using the microphone and maintaining the pace of the meet.
Dive Judge: The dives at all meets are judged by 5 parents – two from the home team and 3 from the away team. The league provides a clinic in the basics of judging to standardize judging at the meets. This training is mandatory and is held on three different dates at the beginning of each summer.
Meet Referee: Westleigh provides the referee at all home meets. The referee provides guidance to the judges regarding maximum scores and failed dives. The referee may also act as a judge during the meets. Prior experience as a judge and tableworker is helpful. Training is provided at the close of the judging clinics.
