Storm Volunteering Policy
The Storm feels strongly that the inclusion of meets benefits not only the athletes that we serve, but also strengthens the communities that we all share. Athletes from other communities brings dollars to local companies, draw attention to our cities, and provide a sense of pride to our organization. It is also a significant means to offset costs associated with the sport; by providing funds for equipment, coaches and pool time.
Fall/Winter – $200.00
Spring/Summer – $200.00
Full Year – $400.00
The Storm typically hosts FOUR large meets, one in the FALL, WINTER, SPRING and SUMER as well as TWO small meets and a variety of intrasquad meets.
YEAR ROUND FAMILIES:
SIX total sessions are required over the course of the Storm swimming year.
THREE in the Fall-Winter plus THREE in the Spring-Summer.
THREE sessions are required for each season you sign up for.
Fall/Winter = one season
Spring/Summer = one season
THREE sessions for fall/winter season. THREE sessions for spring/summer season.
Swimmers who choose to discontinue their membership for any reason during the season, will still be required to fulfill their volunteering requirements, or they will be assessed the volunteering fee.
We will make every effort to post volunteering opportunities 6-9 months in advance and have the volunteer sign-ups open near the beginning of the season. The signups will close FOUR days prior to the start of the event.
If all spaces fill prior to the volunteering deadline, we will ask the families that have not signed up for their required positions to bring in a check. Those funds will be utilized to pay for concession/hospitality food, awards and other meet associated fees.
If you do not sign up to volunteer for an event, make other arrangements to volunteer, or bring in a check to offset costs, there will be a charge added to your account. This will be due prior to the next session that you swim with the South Metro Storm Swim Club.
All active members are expected to volunteer. This includes those in our High School Prep/Middle School Groups.
