IT IS TIME TO DECLARE YOUR SWIMMER(S) FOR SWIM MEETS!! Please go to your online account and declare your swimmer's attendance for ALL of our swim meets! Please review the parent packet that was emailed out last Thursday for detailed instructions. If you have any questions about the online system for declaring your swimmer's attendance at meets and/or volunteering for a job, please stop by the pool office or email us at email@example.com.
For every meet your swimmer(s) will be attending, we require 1 parent/guardian to volunteer for at least 1 shift during the meet. Once you've declared your swimmer as "yes" or "no" to attend the meet, please go back into the event page and click on the "job sign up" tab and select the job you would like to work. You will be able to edit your assignment up to the day before the meet.
More details regarding our Mock Swim Meet:
We are very excited to be hosting our mock-meet on Wednesday, May 22nd. The purpose of the mock meet is to help our new members better understand how we run our meets and prepare our swimmers for the upcoming meet season. We will be setting up starting at . Even though we assign parents of 6 and unders to help set up for all other swim meets, ALL are welcome to come help set up for our mock meet. We will have full access to the pool starting at (when the Rec Center ends public swim). The meet will start as soon as we are set up and ready to go (between ).
For all other meets, we have 2 different shifts for parents to volunteer. For the mock meet, we are scheduling only 1 shift from 5:30 - 8:00 pm. The actual time of the shift will depend on when the meet actually starts and ends. Please be patient and flexible. If you do not sign up to volunteer ahead of time, you will be assigned a job at check in.
A few more pointers to help the mock meet go as smoothly as possible for you:
Swimmers can wear the new team swim suit to the mock meet.
Don't forget to bring goggles, towels and other swim related items. Visit the Membership Section - Swim Meets Page on the website for more tips.
Bring $$ bills for our 50/50 Raffle, heat sheets, and concessions. Our concessions stand will have a "soft" opening that night.
We will have several veteran parents who will be "training" our new parents in their volunteer jobs. During the meet, look for the people wearing the black and white striped referee shirts when you need help or have questions.
If you have any questions, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
EVERYONE!!! GO ONLINE AND DECLARE YOUR SWIMMER(S) FOR ALL SWIM MEETS AND SIGN UP TO VOLUNTEER NOW!! DON'T WAIT OR YOUR FAVORITE JOB MAY BE TAKEN!!
PS: Parents - have you ordered your TFS team shirt, yet? Go to our website and click on the "Team Store" tab. It'll take you right to our team store. The team store is also a fundraiser for our team. When you purchase items, we receive a percentage back. As a non-profit organization, every penny counts! We ask that parents wear their team shirts (or team colors) while working their volunteer assignments at meets . If you order now, your shirt should arrive by our first swim meet (the turn around can be up to 15 business days).
