Our Mission

As the premier source for online Stroke and Turn training, we are committed to making the learning process as painless as possible for both new and returning Licensed Swim Clubs, Officials and League Administrators.

Stroke and Turn Judges provide an important contribution to competitive swimming. Plus, becoming a Stroke and Turn Judge is an extremely rewarding experience. We know that certification has traditionally not been an easy process, and that other certification methods demand an amount of time and effort that is taxing for volunteers, many of whom are busy parents. To remedy this, we provide convenient, online, on-demand training.

StrokeandTurn.com has trained thousands of Stroke and Turn officials across the country. We deliver the cognitive portion of Stroke and Turn training online, in an efficient, affordable and accessible format. As a result, becoming a volunteer official has never been easier.

Help the Ben Hair ‘Just Swim for Life Foundation (BH-JSL)’

We donate 5% of all StrokeandTurn.com proceeds to the Benjamin Hair Just Swim for Life (BH-JSL) Foundation. The goal of the BH-JSL Foundation is “Waterproofing Communities, Saving Lives”.  We fully support their efforts to make sure all children have basic swimming skills and are safe around water. To learn more about the Foundation, the story, and the exceptional work that they are doing, visit www.BHJSL.org.

The officiating material was written by certified USA-Swimming, YMCA, and NFHS Officials, and is in compliance with USA Swimming Rules and Regulations.


StrokeandTurn.Com was created by Ryan and Tyler Gimple, former swimmers in the Jefferson Swim League. We hope you enjoy learning from the site.
