A swim official or volunteer can be added to our site when they register their availability for a meet or an administrator adds them. Their information is only available to the administrators of the meets they register for.

A swim coach may be added to our site when an administrator from the swim meet host club adds them to withdraw their swimmers or they are added by another coach at their club. Their information is only available to their club and the club hosting the meet.
