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 athlete is to fulfill shifts totaling 8 points. For families with two or more athletes, 10 points fulfills the volunteer requirement. Shifts are 1/2 - 2 points each. Volunteer sign-ups open via the team website calendar beginning October 13.  Please note:  Job points may change from season to season depending on team numbers.
