Described below are the volunteer positions available:
Head Timer - The head timer should have experience timing. The purpose of the job is to be a back up timer for each of the races in the event that one of the timers does not get an accurate time. You must be ready 30 minutes prior to the start of the meet and stay for the duration.
Timer - You work the stop watch and record the time of each swimmer in your lane. There are two timers per lane. Punctuality is a must. You must be there 30 minutes prior to the start of the meet and plan on staying for the duration of the meet.
Runner - The runner delivers heat sheets to the timers and coaches. They also take the completed heat sheets from the timers to the computer table. You need to be there 15 minutes prior to the start of the meet and stay until the end.
Greeter/Hospitality - You must arrive 15 minutes prior to the start of the warm up. Your first job is to put up the age group signs on the deck for both the home and away teams. You will check-in each volunteer and swimmer before the meet begins. It is important to communicate with the head volunteer if there are any volunteer positions not filled. After that, you will take water to the timers and coaches throughout the entire meet. You will be needed for the entire meet.
Shepherd - It is best if you have a child in the age group you sign-up for. You need to be there 15 minutes prior to the swim warm up and stay until your assigned group has completed swimming. You will stay with your group the entire time. If heat sheets are available (check with the coaches) you will highlight your swimmers' name on the heat sheet, then mark each of their hands with the heat and lane for each event they are swimming. You will also get the swimmers ready for each heat and bring them to the coaches when it is time, assisting them in lining the swimmers up. It is important to remember to bring a sharpie and a highlighter with you to the meet.
Ribbons - There are 3 ribbon volunteer positions for each home meet. One person to hand out ribbons to the winner of each heat, which means, you will stand on the deck to pass these out. The other volunteer will attach the result stickers to the ribbons (this is usually done in the gym area). The volunteer will need to separate the ribbons for the home and away teams. The away team will take their ribbons when they leave. The third volunteer will be responsible for putting the appropriate ribbons in each of the swimmer's folders. The ribbons need to be completely distributed by the end of the evening. You will need to arrive 15 minutes prior by the start of the meet.
Party Set Up - This position will help our social committee Board Members to set up for each of the events, which will be held either at the clubhouse or poolside. In addition, there may be some additional requests from them. Please contact the board members for additional information [email protected]
