  • Our Parent Volunteering document is attached, which describes what each position does
  • As a reminder, there is a $75 "opt-out" fee for families that elect not to volunteer for the season

CONCESSIONS:

  • A swim meet is only as good as its concession stand! Having a varied and enticing concession stand helps fuel swimmers and raise money for our team. See what you can bring by clicking "Job Signup"

SPORTSMANSHIP / FUN:

The two most important parts of our team! How do we have fun and display good sportsmanship? We have a few expectations of our swimmers:

  • Say hello and make a new friend with someone you may not know from the visiting team
  • Say "Good luck!" before your race and shake hands afterward
  • After your race, grab a snack and/or water, and head to the pool deck to cheer! A positive, LOUD atmosphere can make swimmers feel extra excited for their races
  • Stay until the very end so we can do a LOUD sportsmanship cheer to commend the excellent swims of our friends from the visiting team

AFTER THE MEET:

  • There is a long-standing CVSL tradition where families gather at Al's French Fries after meets in the Greater Burlington area to bond in a classic diner setting with a creemee, meal or simply enjoying your friends' company! This is certainly not mandatory

GENERAL REMINDERS:

  • Please be mindful of the hard work our janitorial staff puts in each time we host a meet to keep the gymnasium, pool area, and pool water in the best condition for our members. Pick up any trash that you may see
  • We know how exciting the basketball hoops and balls are, but the swimmers are NOT allowed to use them at ANY time, including arrival
  • If you are in need of immediate help, ANY EDGE STAFF MEMBER IS AVAILABLE TO HELP: Front Desk, Lifeguards, Coaches and/or the Aquatics Director
