Swimmers are encouraged to attend all team practices and meets. Swimmers are expected to attend at least three (3) regular season ISL swim meets. In order to participate in Champs, the swimmer must participate in at least 2 regular season swim meets AND swim in 4 events.
If your swimmer will miss a meet, leave early or arrive late, it is ESSENTIAL you make a note in the online "swim meet" commitment section
The College Park Splash Swim Team is a 100% volunteer organization. It takes parental support to operate the team and conduct swim meets. Parent participation in the team's activities is a condition of membership, and each family will be required to accumulate a designated amount of jobs through volunteering. Each family is required to submit a $100 volunteer security deposit check. In the event a family does not fulfill one of their volunteer commitments, the check will be cashed. Jobs last approximately 2 hours, some jobs have more hours and are easy and fun to do. We will do everything we can to honor your volunteer requests, however, during the season, we may occasionally need to ask you to change meets and/or job assignments. Families that do not sign up prior to season start will be assigned jobs by the Volunteer Coordinator.
If you find that you cannot work a meet that you have agreed to work, it is your responsibility to go online and change your volunteer to another spot. If you are changing the week of the meet, you will need to find a replacement for your shift. Your replacement will receive credit for working your shift, and you will need to work another shift at another meet. Best practice is to trade shifts with that volunteer.
WHATEVER YOU WORK OUT, IT IS IMPERATIVE THAT YOU INFORM THE VOLUNTEER COORDINATOR OF YOUR PLANS IMMEDIATELY.
