Swim meets require all hands on deck! With 250-300 swimmers at each dual meet, we can’t successfully run the meet without the support of our parents.
As members of the swim team, a parent is required to work at least one shift at every meet in which their child swims. We use Sign-Up to manage our volunteering for all meets. Parents that do not sign up for their jobs will be assigned one from what is left. We have the sign up for all jobs once the season begins.
The meet jobs are timers, recorders, runners, time sorter, set-up/clean-up, host/hostess, event board, ribbons, and snack bar workers. The key meet jobs (require training) are stroke and turn judges, starter/announcer, and computer scorer. To learn more about each volunteering role, click here for job descriptions.
Families that do not volunteer on a regular basis are not allowed to register their children the following season. If family circumstances do not permit parents to work at a meet, they should contact the Volunteer Coordinator to make other arrangements. This is only for extreme circumstances.
