Parent Volunteering

You have an important role to play on the swim team. MESA is known for being an organized, efficient, knowledgeable team. We run fast meets. A typical swim meet has upwards of 200 swimmers swimming in 90 events, many of which have multiple heats. We start the meets at 8:00 a.m. sharp, and are usually finished before 12:30 p.m. (many “away” meets can drag on to 1:00 or 2:00!)

It takes the entire Pirate crew to run a meet. Meets are staffed with 90 volunteers; split into several jobs and shifts. Your first few meets may be a bit intimidating, but don’t worry, your fellow parents will help you along the way. Working the meets also makes the time fly by! Most meet jobs work either the first-half or the second-half of the meet, switching during event 45. See “Meet Jobs” for a description of each job.

REQUIREMENT:  Each family must work at least 5 jobs during the season

In addition to working home dual meets, a few volunteers are also needed at away meets and for the League Finals.

Volunteer jobs are first-come, first-served – watch for notification of job sign up and complete the process as soon as possible. If you have a conflict and need to change jobs after the sign-up period has closed, it is YOUR RESPONSIBILITY to find a replacement.

Not a big fan of working the meet jobs? Consider joining the Board and work all year instead! (Board members are exempted from working meet jobs, but all of them do anyway.)
