Officials who travel outside of the LSC to be mentored and bring back best practices from other locations are, in certain circumstances, eligible to receive travel assistance. The requirements are as follows:

  1. Officials are eligible to request assistance for three (3) meets per calendar year.
  2. Officials should notify the Officials Chair prior to accepting a position at a meet in order to be sure there are funds available.
  3. Officials are required to work within the LSC to provide mentoring for our local officials (details on this work requirement will be updated after the November 2023 Officials Committee meeting.)
  4. Reimbursement can be used to cover lodging, travel and food expenses. Alcohol is not covered.
