We need help!

Stingray parents,

As we get ready for meet season, we need your help!  There are over 70 volunteer positions that need to be filled to staff and run a swim meet successfully.  For our new parents, we will review these at our new parent meeting tomorrow, Thursday 5/12 at 7 pm at the pool.  

Some positions need to be selected and trained ahead of the swim meets.  We are looking for parents to volunteer for the following:

  • Data Manager / RCSL Computer Rep:  This person sets up our swim meets in the online system and supervises the data entry volunteers at swim meets.  If you like working with data and are good and entering information into an online system, WE NEED YOU!  
  • Stroke & Turn Officials:  Officials help to qualify swimmers for championships by providing feedback in the form of a DQ (disqualification) slip during swim meets.  DQs during meets give feedback to the swimmer regarding what they need to work on to improve technique.  
  • Announcers:  The primary job of the announcer is to make announcements using our microphone & speaker system to keep all swimmers informed and instructed throughout the meet.  Announcers notify meet goers on the status of warmups, check-in, events, and other important information.  

If you are able to volunteer for one of the above opportunities, please email us at [email protected] so we can arrange pre-training.  EVERYONE will be required to volunteer for one of the many other jobs during our hosted swim meets.  More details regarding registering for swim meets and signing up to volunteer will be coming soon.
