SERVICE HOURS and FUNDRAISING REQUIREMENTS—2020-2021
Service Hours per Family
There is a minimum 4-hour service hour requirement for the families of PEAK. The primary way that families earn service hours is by signing up to help with at swim meets. Swim teams cannot successfully run hosted meets that provide opportunities for swimmers to compete without the help of team parents. At each meet, the Meet Director, officials, people running the computers, timers, clerk of course, safety monitors, meet runners, etc. are ALL volunteers. When PEAK hosts a meet, parents are needed to help even if their swimmers are not swimming at the PEAK hosted meet. YOU ARE WANTED AND NEEDED!
Families may also earn service hours by volunteering to serve as a board member, becoming an official, serving as a committee chair, or helping with other PEAK sponsored events.
Signing up for volunteer hours but not showing up or not participating in the assigned activity will result in a charge of $75 per hour following the event. Neither the volunteer coordinator or meet directors have the discretion to waive any “no-show” charge. Reasonable excuses for failing to show for volunteer hours may be presented to the Board of Directors for resolution.
If service hours are not completed, the number of hours not earned as of July 31, 2021 will result in a $75/hour not worked charge which will be billed to your card on file on August 1, 2021.
You must have an active swimmer on the team to earn service hours. If you choose to withdraw your swimmer from the team before this deadline payment for any unworked hours will be due before departure from the team; hours billed may be prorated depending on the timing of the withdrawal
Fundraising Requirement per family
For the 2020-2021 year, PEAK will not have a mandatory fundraising minimum. Families are encouraged to support fundraising if possible, through using the Scrip program and business sponsorship. If PEAK is able to offer fundraising events during the year, all swimmers are encouraged to participate.
