Parent Volunteers

Swim and dive meets would not be possible without parent volunteers. Parents are needed at all meets. The success of our team depends on the involvement of all parents, and the coaches and team appreciate your support. The jobs are easy, and working the meets really helps the time fly! 

The volunteer obligation for families with one swimmer is to fulfill shifts totaling 5 points. For families with two or more swimmers, 6 points fulfills the volunteer requirement. Shifts are 1-2 points each.
