Volunteer Points

 The Volunteer Points System


The success of a Swim Club is dependent on active parent involvement and participation. Each family with swimmers registered as High Performance, Senior, Junior and Provincial will be required to earn a total of 350 Points (this is per family not per swimmer). Each family with swimmers registered as Novice will be required to earn a total of 150 Points. These points must be earned in full by the end of June 30th of each year. Plenty of opportunities to do so will be made available.

While there will be no dollar value attached to participation points earned in excess of the requirement, there will be a charge for falling short of the requirement. Families will owe BTSC $1.00 for every point not earned.

The Volunteer Points System is reviewed annually to ensure that total point requirements per family and point distributions per volunteer role are supporting the Club’s current needs and priorities. For example: Swim Canada requires that each Swim Club have a minimum number of Officials at specific levels. We are obligated to ensure the ongoing education and certification of Officials attached to the Barrie Trojan Swim Club and we have created  incentives for certification via our volunteer points system.

Please note: No less than one family member must work at least one session at each of the club hosted meets  (regardless of whether or not you have reached your total points requirement). 
 

ULTIMATELY, THE GOAL OF THE VOLUNTEER POINT SYSTEM IS TO MAXIMIZE THE POSITIVE IMPACT THAT VOLUNTEERISM HAS ON OUR SWIM TEAM.
