2017-2018 Volunteer Requirements

A part of joining the Edina Swim Club is committing time to volunteer at our hosted
meets throughout the year. All families registered for fall/winter, fall/winter with another sport, spring/summer or full season will be required to fulfill shift requirements.

  • There will be a $100 charge for each shift not filled.  Requirements
    are per family and based on the highest level swimmer in the family.

required for each family, but all families are encouraged to volunteer for additional shifts.

Families affected by the boys' high school state meet should contact the
volunteer coordinator to discuss alternative ways to fulfill the MAC volunteer requirement.

LEAD* positions count as 1.5 shifts served for:
  awards
  concessions
  hospitality
  Colorado timing (trained volunteers only)
  meet manager (trained volunteers only)

*Must have at least 1 shift of experience to be a lead.  Shifts are a bit longer and have more responsibility.

Shift Requirements
Volunteers under the age of 18 will be limited to certain positions.  Please check
with the volunteer coordinator before you sign up.

Shift times vary from meet to meet.  Always check the volunteer signup for shift time.

If your volunteer position is not on the pool deck, you will still be able to see
your child compete. Just be sure to communicate your needs to your fellow
volunteers, and your role will be covered during your brief absence.

Three days before the meet - finalized shift information will be posted on the
website. Details will include positions filled and check in/start time. Once the timeline
for the meet has been posted, you will be able to determine the length of your shift. 
You must stay for your entire volunteer shift.

The club is always looking for volunteers who are interested in training for
specialized positions, including Colorado Timing, Meet Manager, Chairs, and Officials.
