Volunteer Commitment
Home Meet Volunteer Policy
North Jeffco Swim Team is promoting volunteerism amongst its membership by giving families who volunteer for a specified number of sessions or more a 20% discount on the practice fees for the next trimester in which the family registers (excludes meet fees, USA Swimming fees or yearly registration fee). The team relies on hosting meets to keep membership practice fees reasonable. The funds from these meets goes into the general budget from which every family reaps the benefits. Below are the minimum commitments per family to be eligible for the discount.
 
Fall Trimester:
Yellow, Gold, Green, any 1st year family: at least 3 sessions
Red, White, Black, Silver, Orange, Blue: at least 5 sessions
Swimmers on Girls HS discount: at least 4 sessions
 
Winter Trimester:
Yellow, Gold, Green, any 1st year family: at least 2 sessions
Red, White, Black, Silver, Orange, Blue: at least 2 sessions
Swimmers on Girls HS discount: 0 sessions
 
Summer Trimester:
Yellow, Gold, Green, any 1st year family: at least 2 sessions
Red, White, Black, Silver, Orange, Blue: at least 3 sessions
Swimmers on Boys HS discount: at least 1 session
 
Families with more than one swimmer on the team, the discount will be available only if the member family meets the volunteer commitment for the highest number of sessions. As an example. A family with a swimmer in Yellow and Black, the number of volunteer sessions the family must contribute to be eligible for the discount would be the Black group sessions.
 
Swimmers who join late into any trimester can drop 1 session for each month into the trimester they join. For example, join in October and the required sessions drops to 2, 4 & 3, join in November and it becomes 1, 3 & 2, etc.
 
Championship Meet Volunteer Obligation:
ALL families with a swimmer(s) attending Championship meets will be expected to time when the team is given a timing assignment. Refusal to perform this duty could result in expulsion from the team. Championship meets include but are not limited to: Silver State, Zone 2, State, Senior Meet, Far Westerns, Sectionals, etc. The time served at these meets will not count toward the volunteer commitments described above.

Which meets can I earn Team Volunteer Credit?
In the fall trimester there are 3 meets and a total of 9 sessions of swimming the Jeffco Hurricanes host. In the winter trimester there is 1 meet and 4-5 sessions of competition, in the summer 2 meets and 5-10 sessions of competition.  Volunteer sessions can be completed at Jeffco hosted meets at Meyers. There are many meets in which the team is expected to provide timers (other Team's Meets, Silver State, State, etc); volunteer credit is not earned at non-Jeffco hosted meets. 

How can we check our volunteer sessions?
To check your earned volunteer sessions, login to your Jeffco account on the web site. Click the My Invoice/Payment link on the left, the click the Service Hours tab. Your balance should be listed.
 
Can I contribute extra volunteer sessions in one trimester and use them to meet the minimum commitment in the following trimester​?
One a case by case basis, families may be allowed to contribute extra volunteer sessions in a trimester and roll them over for volunteer credit in the following trimester. Requests to perform additional volunteer sessions to be rolled over must be in writing to the NJST Board of Directors and received in advance of the last meet of the trimester, to receive consideration. The board will review requests as they are received. No more than one roll over per year and a maximum of two sessions will be allowed.
