STAC Timing Policy
STAC Family Volunteer Policy
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 STAC's Head Timer and all (including the Head Timer) must 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 “handoff” with the other timer assigned to your lane. If you are timing for another family, please let the Head Timer know who you are timing for. Head Timers are required to send a report of who worked during their session by Monday after the meet. No points will be given to timers without this report submitted by the Head Timer to email@example.com.
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.
