JOBS TABLES INFORMATION
FOR LONG COURSE SEASON
Our Jobs Tables for the first 3 hosted swim meets will open on Saturday, April 28th at 12:30pm! Mark your calendars and set your alarms, and most importantly, read this entire email! As a reminder, families with only Novice swimmers are not required to work, but we welcome your help.
All families will need to work 4 Job Slots during the Long Course Season. In some cases jobs are worth more than one credit (Concessions manager for a swim meet, Committee Chairs, etc), additionally we will be offering double points on Friday night of our Long Course Meet, June Splash Bash, on June 1st all Job slots will be worth double credit! Work 1 job on Friday night, earn 2 Job credits! We do ask that each family only sign up for one job slot on Friday night to start, so that all of our families can take advantage of this opportunity!
Families have 5 Swim meets to fulfill their Job Requirements! We do expect some Jobs tables to fill very quickly. If you are able to work a swim meet, and all of the Jobs Tables are full, please just see our Volunteer Check-In Table and they will be happy to assign you a job for any of our swim meets.

All meets are set for a maximum of 2 job slots per family, with the exception of the June 1-3 meet at EMU, so that everyone has a chance to work.

Very important reminders:
USSC has a very good reputation for hosting well run and enjoyable meets. These are great fundraisers for our club so we need everyone’s help to make sure these events are successful and so we are awarded additional meets in future seasons. There is a $75.00 per job slot fine for not fulfilling the required amount of volunteer slots for the season. USSC does not wish to levy this fine, it is only meant as a deterrent, so please help us avoid this by volunteering your time for the required job slots.
We also realize that preplanned events or last minute occurrences may cause your family to not be able to work at a hosted meet that you have committed to working. In the event that this occurs, PLEASE contact Kelly Tokarz ASAP.
We believe it is ideal for you to volunteer DURING the session that your child is competing in to avoid additional trips to the meet. Almost every job at hosted meets allows you the ability to go on deck and watch your child during their events, so please take advantage of this opportunity.
Saturday sessions at hosted meets have historically been very heavily attended and most parents choose to volunteer on Saturday. This year we are asking that if you have a child that is swimming in the Friday or Sunday sessions that you please consider working one of those sessions first, so we can try to accommodate having everyone volunteer during their child’s session.
We appreciate everyone's commitment to USSC! If you have questions, please reach out!
