Parent Volunteer Requirements / Officials Needed:

In order for us to offer a successful program, we require all families to help out at meets and events throughout the fall. 

A family representative must be available to time 1-2 shifts at all meets their swimmer attends. Our Volunteer Coordinator will post timing slots a few days prior to each meet for families to sign-up. 

We will also need all families to work at our meet in November.  Job descriptions and assignments will be made available closer to the meet.  

Any parent willing to participate in the free training to become a USA Swimming Official will be guaranteed a spot in Sharks Fall Swimming for all of their swimmers (they must be a Crow Canyon member). Your swimmers are able to swim in USA Swim meets because we are affiliated with a year round USA swim team.   Each team is required to provide a number of officials based on their swimmer entries. *If we have 50-75 Sharks swimmers (fall and year round), we need to provide 3 officials. We will be conducting a brief training in August, followed by on deck training at our first Fall meet, hosted by the Sharks in November. 

NOTE: If you choose to be trained as USA Swimming official, you will be given a $50 discount.

USA Swim Registration:

Participation in fall swim meets is optional, but strongly encouraged.  It is a great opportunity to try out new events and distances.  

In addition to program Registration Fees, swimmer's attending meets this fall must register with USA Swimming / Pacific Swimming.  Seasonal Registration Forms will be available early in August.
