Thanks for starting this Dave!
A cut and paste from the thread that shall remain unnamed…
I am working on the Open Water Committee’s Guide to Operations sub-committee and I am truly interested in the thoughts and suggestions on how to improve the documents referred to above and how we can get information better disseminated to the event directors, coaches, and swimmers.The Open Water Committee is working towards training and certification courses for event directors, safety directors and referees; we’ve talked about boater safety training as well, but we wanted to tackle the big 3 first. And I encourage any interested members to provide feedback on the currently available Open Water Manual,
Open Water Safety Objectives, Open Water Safety Workshop Notes and Open Water Clinic Manual which can be found at http://www.usms.org/admin/lmschb/?ut...for_volunteers
