Minimum Participation Volunteer Commitment Policy and Meet Timing Policy

DART at Sacramento (the “Team”) is operated 100% by Parent Volunteers. For the Team to function effectively for the benefit of our swimmers, the Team is adopting a Parent Participation and Volunteer Commitment policy, in line with many other swim teams.  Such a volunteer commitment policy ensures more involvement and an equitable distribution of the work required to operate our Team.  It is our vision that each family will make every effort to support our team with their time, talents, and energy.

Families are required to volunteer minimum hours based on their highest-level swimmer at the beginning of the swim year.  Timing duties at Home or Away meets do not count toward these hours.
