STAC Family Volunteer Policy – Summer League
We have developed a point system to encourage all families to do their share to help our team be successful.
We require all families to complete 4 volunteer points for each swimmer, + 1 for each additional swimmer this Summer League season. The points must be earned by the end of summer league and there will be no point carry over from season to season.
Everyone will have ample opportunity to earn their points. Only family members 18 years or older are able to sign up for the jobs to fulfill the point requirement. Anyone that doesn't want to work their share has the option to pay $400 before the season begins. Any unpaid points will be accessed at $100 per point and will be charged to your account at the end of the summer league season.
Point donation is permitted. If a fellow STAC family is willing to help you achieve your point commitment, it will be accepted. The person working on your family’s behalf must inform the Head Timer or Event Coordinator which family they are working for or you will not get credit for the points earned.
USA Swim Official: 2 points for each meet worked
Head Timer: 1.5 points for each meet worked
Meet Timer: 1 point for each meet worked
Meet Floater .5 point for each meet worked (Not assigned a job but willing to be at the meet and fill in if needed. Must attend timers meeting at the beginning of the meet’s session.)
Create Your Own Job: If you see a need, please don’t hesitate to step up and volunteer. Contact email@example.com to determine if your job fills a need for the team and can earn .5-1 point.
We will open our Job Signup for timers under Events prior to meets for people to volunteer. Final timing assignments will not be confirmed by our Coordinator until we get our assignments from the hosting team only days before the meet.
On the day of the meet all timers must check in with the STAC Head Timer and attend the timers meeting before the session begins regardless of whether you have timed in the past or which half you are timing. This is your opportunity to coordinate the “hand off” with the other timer assigned to your lane. If you are timing for another family, please let the Timing Coordinator know who you are timing for.
If all of our timing positions are not filled with volunteers, we will assign the job to families that have an athlete swimming in the session. You will have to find a replacement if you cannot time yourself. If you cannot find a replacement, you are obligated to complete the timing assignment yourself.
If you are assigned to time, but do not show up, you will be assessed $100 for the unearned point after the meet.
People Unable to Time:
If you have a medical reason that you cannot time, we ask that you declare this to us before the season begins. We will help you find other volunteer jobs that will help the team and earn points to fulfill the family requirement.
