MANY HANDS MAKE LIGHT WORK! Otters are a great family!
What makes us great? -The willingness to help and support each other!
All Competitive Team families are required to volunteer to help at meets and donate food or other items to the concessions stand.
Please see below for job descriptions.
Dual Meet Volunteer Descriptions
Timer: Is responsible for timing one lane. Working this job gives you one of the best viewing areas in the house! This job only requires starting and stopping a stopwatch and recording the time on a time card.
Ribbons: Placing name, race, time labels on ribbons. This is a great job for someone who prefers a job that allows you to sit down while working.
Finish Judge: Record, first, second, & third, place finishes of each “live” event.
Official (Starter/Stroke and Turn): Must have certification (For information on certification contact Maureen Rudy.)
Snack Bar: Helps organize, sell, and sometimes cook items at our bake sale table. Working the snack bar is like running your family’s kitchen except it’s much more social and fun!
Meet set-up and tear down: Sounds like a lot of work and it is, but doing it the “Otter” way is always a lot of fun! We need lots of muscle and manpower to set up and tear down a swim meet.
Computers: Connecting wires, running Meet Manager, double-checking the timing system, and scoring the meet. If you really want to know what’s going on, this is the place to be.
Swimmer Line-up: Lining up swimmers that are ages 10 and under for their events. Volunteering here is a great way to get to know all our wonderful swimmers. This is a great job for someone who has younger swimmers!
Banquet Committee: Planning and organizing our end of the season banquet.
Team/Coaches Gift Committee: Researching and buying the team/coaches end of season gifts.
Snack Bar Runner: Running for pizza, ice, and other items for the concession stand during swim meets.
