Clerk of Course

The clerks of course are more like child coordinators. Before the beginning of the meet, the clerks of course will receive clipboards from the timing tent containing all of the heat sheets for the meet. During the meet, the clerks will stand near the entrance to the swimmer area, and they will gather BST swimmers for their upcoming events. There is a small flip chart which displays event numbers to aid in gathering swimmers. Once swimmers have been assembled, the clerks are responsible for getting them in the correct position on deck and ready for their event.


Clerking is most important for the younger swimmers (6U, 8U, 10U). Once swimmers reach the 12 & Under age group, they typically take care of themselves.
