Parents are an important part of the success of our program. We appreciate the support you give to the swimmers, coaches and team.
Throughout the year there are a variety of activities that require parent involvement including:
Our team is partnering with the YMCA to jointly fund, acquire and install a removable dome (bubble) for the pool at the YMCA Lafayette location for winter training (September-May). There are many activities related to this effort where parent volunteers are essential.
Team Sponsored Swim Meets
The additional pool space at the YMCA will allow our team to host swim meets, which are not possible without the help of every swim team family helping to run the meet.
Timing at Meets
We are occasionally asked to provide volunteers (often timers) at meets we attend. It is essential that parents attending those meets help with our team's assigned job. Many hands makes light work! A parent volunteer will create a sign-up sheet that will be located at our team area for meets where we are asked to help. We work very hard to ensure that parents are able to watch their swimmers and keep shifts reasonably short.
We host a number of team functions including a holiday party, Fall Kick-off BBQ, and smaller age group events. When these activities come up we will send email requests with an electronic sign-up sheet for food, drink and help needed.
