USA Swimming racing start certifications
Admin Level - Superuser
As of May 1, 2018, USA Swimming implemented a requirement of Backstroke Start Certification for swimmers. This is in addition to Forward Start Certification adopted in 2009. To facilitate this, SwimOffice provides a way to document the dates of when each swimmer is certified for forward racing starts, and backstroke racing starts with and without a ledge.
