Swimming is a family sport and volunteering is ESSENTIAL to running smooth and timely meets. Please step up and volunteer to assist at the events as required below.

Each family is required to earn a designated number of points by volunteering for a job assignment at the dual meets. This number will be determined dependent on the number of swim team families that are registered and will be announced after registration is closed on June 1st. (Typically, this has been 2 or 3 points.)

As a guest team, we are often asked to provide timers for away invitational swim events. A sign up for timers will be posted for each invitational. If there are openings left and your child is registered as a swimmer, you may be asked to fill in as a timer during one of the sessions. As a courtesy, most teams offer a complimentary entrance fee to those timers that sign up ahead of time!

All parents (or a family delegate) are required to volunteer at both the Fast & Furious Invitational and League Championship meet regardless of whether or not your child is swimming in the event. If you are unable to attend in person, a family delegate must volunteer in your place. Delegates can be aunts, uncles, friends, grandparents, older siblings, or anyone over the age of 12 willing and able to help! Volunteering for these events DOES NOT count toward the required number of points for the season.

If you need to reschedule or cancel a volunteer spot that you have already signed up for, you will need to find a replacement and notify the Volunteer Coordinator with the name of your replacement as soon as possible. Substitutes, if not other swim team parents, must be at least 12 years old.
