Parent Requirements

Hosting swim meets and the Oregon Kid’s Triathlon (OKT) are important parts of our club’s revenue, second only to actual registration fees. As such, every registered family is required to volunteer their time during OCSC hosted meets and OKT as outlined below.  Every family has the same number of required shifts regardless of the number of children in the family, or whether your swimmer is participating in the event we are hosting or not. 

The Oregon Community Swim Club (OCSC) swim season is divided into 4 sessions:

  • Short Course 1 (SC1) – September through early November
  • Short Course 2 (SC2) – early November through mid-February
  • Long Course 1 (LC1) – April through May
  • Long Course 2 (LC2) – June through July
