Parent volunteer involvement is essential to the effective operation of our swim team and the success of our dual meets. It also contributes to our team pride!
The Crocodiles use a point system to track volunteer involvement.
We require each family to volunteer for a number of jobs during the season to earn at least 70 points. See a list of job descriptions and points. Volunteer jobs include support of dual meet operations as well as support for our social and fundraising events. Sign-ups for jobs are done on-line.
Which jobs should I choose?
New volunteers: If you are new to the team, we recommend starting with some 10 point jobs. These are easier and will help you learn the basics of a swim meet, like timing and recording. If you have a swimmer age 10 and under, and like working with kids, Age Group Coordinator might be a good fit for you.
Returning members: Step up to some larger jobs on the team. And if you want to help with the general operations, talk to a Board Member about other opportunities.
Are There Other Requirements In Addition to the Point System?
Yes! There are two other requirements in addition to the regular-season volunteer requirements.
- Championship Meet (CHAMPS) at the end of the season:
One adult volunteer per family, minimum of one shift. (unless you do not have a swimmer participating in the Championship meet)
- Black & Green Meet (Time Trials) at the start of the season:
One adult volunteer per family, minimum of one shift. It is a perfect opportunity to learn about dual-meet jobs.
The Board, coaches, and swimmers greatly appreciate your time.
