Policies Regarding Obligations
Swim team is a parent participation sport. As such, each family is responsible for fulfilling its job commitment to the team. To this end, a minimum number of job requirements will be confirmed following the Registration deadline. For meet jobs, workers should check in with the Meet Directors 30 minutes prior to commencement of the meet, or as otherwise required by each job. PLEASE BE ON TIME! IT IS EXTREMELY IMPORTANT THAT MEETS BEGIN ON TIME, AND THIS CANNOT HAPPEN UNLESS WORKERS REPORT TO DUTY PUNCTUALLY. Workers must stay for their entire shift. In some instances, this requires completing the job after the meet has ended.
If you are unable to work a job, you are responsible for switching with another family or finding your own substitute. All substitutes must be 16 years of age or older. (Per WCSC rules, Conference Meet substitutes must be at least 18 years of age.) A list of available substitutes will be provided on the team website, but you are welcome to use another trusted individual provided you communicate who will be coming in your place to the meet directors. If you or your substitute fails to show up or otherwise complete a shift, a fine of $100 will be charged to your account. Please communicate all changes with the meet directors prior to the meet (for 2021 season they are Jill Berg ([email protected]) and Gina Schneider ([email protected])). They need to know who to expect on meet day!
