CHAMPIONSHIPS MEET VOLUNTEER REQUIREMENT
Our league Championships Meet (‘Champs’) is a huge, rewarding endeavor requiring parent volunteers from ALL teams in our conference. Each family in attendance at Champs (in late July) is required to volunteer 2-3 shifts over the course of the weekend, depending on needs determined by the league. Champs shifts are IN ADDITION TO the six (6) shift requirement for the regular season.
CHAMPIONSHIPS MEET ATTENDANCE POLICY
All swimmers and families are asked to make Championships a priority. Champs, from a team perspective as well as an individual perspective, is the culmination of a season's worth of hard work and goal setting. If your family must miss the event, we ask you to adhere to the following protocol as stated in the Parent and Swimmer Commitments you sign up on registration.
A formal request to be excused from the Championship meet must be sent in writing to the JRSC Barracuda Swim Team board of directors. Please submit your request directly by filling out this Google Form. You will need to fill out one for each swimmer in your family. The request is subject to approval by the board and will be discussed at the Board Meeting.
To help the Coaching Staff prepare the team for Championships please send your request to the board no later than 2 (two) meets prior to Championships. Medical requests are exempt from this time requirement.
