Summer Parent Volunteer Expectations
Swim meets are truly family events! It’s poolside glamping at it’s finest. During the course of a meet, there is often downtime that makes reading, playing a game or running around with newly made friends a perfect opportunity!
Swim meets are reliant on volunteers and are the most successful with family involvement. There are numerous duties that are necessary to ensure our swimmers have a great experience. Please, plan to work at 3-4 meets. We ask for a session per meet, which is half a meet, switching off at the break between the backstroke and breaststroke events. We participate in 4 meets through the summer season, 2 home meets, 2 away meets and the Championship Meet.
In order for all of these meets to run smoothly, we are asking parents for commitment:
- Volunteer a minimum 3 dual meets.
- Volunteer at the Summer Champs meets, families are required minimum 1 session the Championship meet.
Job Signs up will be available to sign up at the same time that meets are posted to commit to. Here is an example of where to look for the job sign up button:
Set-up/Take-down, timers, Announcer, Colorado announcing machine and Computers.
*Training will be provided!
We want to foster a sense of community amongst our families. High-fives, encouraging words, let's cheer each other on and demonstrate good sportsmanship!
