Why Parent Jobs in the Marin Swim League?

As with all teams in the Marin Swim League (MSL), our Stingrays Swim Team would not function without the assistance of parents, especially during our swim meets. Each swim meet requires upwards of 100 jobs that need to be filled. By fulfilling these jobs you will contribute to the success and enjoyment of all the swimmers on the team. Parent participation in their children’s activities results in a more meaningful experience for all.  Working jobs and attending social events helps parents understand the swim team experience and provides an opportunity to meet other parents and have fun. Parent connections help children feel better connected to the team and also helps prepare them for swim meets.

What About Stingrays Parent Jobs?

There are work assignments at each meet for every interest and timeframe. For example: Set-up or take down equipment, timers, desk jobs, etc. Some jobs will count as more than one job based on the time-commitment and/or level of responsibility required. In addition to jobs at the swim meets, there are several key season-long jobs and Stingrays social events to choose from that require a parent coordinator and event workers.

Jobs are MANDATORY and are available on a first-come first-served basis.  You must select your jobs at the time you register your swimmer. Because all swim meets and events are run by parents, being there and being on time is imperative. If you are unsure of your schedule or ability to commit to a particular job or date, consider paying the JOB WAIVE FEE. Missing work assignments and even being late for swim meets seriously and negatively impacts the team.
A $100 fee is charged to your account for each missed job. In the unlikely hood that you are not able to fulfill your commitment, you are responsible for getting a sub for your job and telling the Parent Job Coordinator of this change in advance of the event.

The numbers listed below are the minimum job requirement. You may be asked to fill additional jobs if needed. NOTE:  These jobs DO NOT include parent commitments at the MSL All Stars or MSL Championship meets. If your swimmer participates in "Champs" you will be required to also work at Champs.
