Volunteer Requirements


Each Family has a 20 Hour Minimum

Full Season Option (Sept-May) & 7-Month Option (Nov-May)


The BASS Swim Team is a non-profit (501c(3)) organization, that relies on parent volunteers to help the team run smoothly and remain successful and affordable.  Swimmer participation in the BASS-hosted meets is a requirement for the 2017-2018 BASS Season.  The BASS-hosted meets are not possible without parents volunteering during the meets.  Therefore, BASS Swimming has a mandatory volunteering program for all members of our team.  BASS Families who have signed up for the Full Season Option (Sept-May) and the 7-Month Option (Nov-May) are required to fulfill a minimum of Twenty (20) volunteer hours spread out over the three (3) BASS-hosted swim meets and the Swim-A-Thon.   


What does this mean?

For each BASS-hosted meet or event listed below, there are a minimum number of hours you MUST volunteer per meet.  If you do not complete the minimum number of volunteer hours per meet or event, your account will be billed $15 for each hour of volunteer time missed.  If additional volunteer hours are approved to be made-up at a later swim meet your account will be credited accordingly.  Prior Board approval is required for make-up hours.


The BASS-hosted swim meets are as follows:

1.    BASS November Invitational, Nov. 18-19, 2017, Collegiate School Aquatic Center (CSAC), Richmond

2.    BASS Winter Invitational*, Feb. 3-4, 2018, Woodberry Forest School (WBF), Madison

3.    Swim-A-Thon, Feb. 9, 2018, Woodberry Forest School (WBF), Madison

4     Jim Frye Invitational (Long Course), May 5-6, 2018, Collegiate School Aquatic Center (CSAC), Richmond
