#1 - Timing at a Swim Meet

Timing or officiating at an away swim meet is required for every family with a swimmer attending the meet. These are shared responsibilities for all participating teams and the number of timers and officials required by each team is based on the number of entered swimmers. Families should anticipate timing each day their swimmer is racing.

Once we receive our team requirements from the host team, assignments will be made available on our website. Click on "Job Signups" to the right of meet name on our home page. 



#2 - SASO Hosted Swim Meets

Hosted meets are the primary fundraisers for our team and allow dues to remain competitive,  All swimmers benefit from the money raised at these meets. The number of hours/sessions required for each swim group is determined based on the size and length of the meet. The Meet Director will work with the Board of Directors to set the volunteering schedule and requirements.
We host two major swim meets a year which will have volunteer requirements for SASO families.


  • Fall Back Invite / November (TBD) 2020
  • Last Chance Qualifier / February 22-24, 2020


#3 - "SEE" Otters Volunteer

Go to SEE Otters Volunteers / Parent Leadership Roles to see all volunteer positions.

Leadership roles are assigned a point value based on the amount of work they require.  Advanced Swim Group families are expected to accumulate 6-12 leadership points per 6 month period depending upon the highest swim group of their swimmer(s).  Volunteer cycles are broken up  into  two six-month periods: January – June and July – December. Points do not carryover and are non-transferrable.

If you have more than one swimmer, follow requirements of your highest level swimmer only.
