Parent Volunteering

As a member of Shockwave, families in any Shockwave swim group may be required to volunteer in some capacity at each Shockwave hosted swim meet.   This will be communicated via email prior to the meet.  There may be times when all parents will be required to volunteer regardless if your child is participating in a team hosted meet or not.  Parents may also be required to volunteer at out of town meets as designated by the host team.   

Volunteer opportunities & job sign up for each meet will be posted online.  All volunteers, including USA Swimming Officials, do not get paid. 


Volunteer opportunities include timing, concessions, hospitality, Official (requires training to become a USA Swimming Official), runner, awards, deck marshall, meet set up & break down.  Training is available!
