Our team depends on volunteers!
Each swimmer's family must contribute at least twenty-four (24) hours per calendar year toward the activities of the team. Families who only have fitness swimmer(s) are the only ones who are exempt from volunteer hours.
How do I sign up to volunteer?
Volunteer opportunities will be available throughout the year. The Volunteer Coordinator will make these opportunities known to you, and you are always welcome to email the volunteer coordinator at email@example.com to offer to share your talents in a way we haven’t thought of yet! Up to 10 of a family’s volunteer hours may be earned timing at meets. The remaining 14 hours can be fulfilled in a plethora of ways, including but not limited to: volunteering at the Westside Aquaducks C/B/A meet (usually late June), working at our swim-a-thon, fundraising, securing sponsors, organizing parades, bbqs and other events, becoming certified and volunteering as a USA Swimming Official, and serving on the board.
Contact our volunteer coordinator to see where you're needed -- or to share your own ideas about how you'd like to help the team -- firstname.lastname@example.org
How do I report my volunteer hours?
All volunteer hours must be reported via email within two weeks of completing them. To do so, just email email@example.com with a summary of your hours. The volunteer coordinator will log the hours, and then reply to you confirming that your hours have been credited. There will be no end of year adjustments, so it is important that you report the hours you work within the two-week window.
What if I am not able to fulfill my required hours?
For those who are not able to serve all of their hours, we offer the option of paying $15.00 per unserved hour, or a maximum of $360.00. You will be billed each January for the hours your family has not served during the previous calendar year.
In order to check your family’s hours, simply log onto the team website with your user name and password. Then click on “My Account” on the left hand menu and choose “$My Invoice/Payment” from the dropdown menu. That will take you to a main screen with your latest monthly invoice. At the top of your invoice is a second tab for Service Hours. When you click on the “Service Hours” tab you will see a detailed list of all your logged hours for the year.
Check back often -- volunteer opportunities will be posted here on a regular basis. Questions? Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thanks for all you do to help our team!
