Parent Volunteers

Hackberrry Creek Stingrays Swim Team

Volunteer Position Descriptions

AT MINIMUM - ALL Stingray families must volunteer for 2 half meet shifts. 

We have many different ways you can fulfill your volunteer responsibility.  If you have a special circumstance, we can help you choose an opportunity that meets your needs.

If you are unable to perform your job, it is your responsibility to find a replacement.  Please remember that a meet cannot start until all the jobs are filled.  The Swim Team Board may need to assign parents to jobs if no one has volunteered.  Please also note that home meets require additional jobs which must be performed.

We will have 1 Marshall per age group. Volunteers are responsible for checking in all swimmers in their age group, writing swimmers events, heats, lanes on their arms, supervise age group during meet, organize swimmers for events and escort swimmers to ready bench before each event. These positions are for both HOME and AWAY meets.

Volunteers will stand in each lane of the pool and use a stop watch to time the swimmers. You could also be required to record swimmer times on the time sheet. These positions are for both HOME and AWAY meets.

Our swim team is run completely by volunteers.

Your contribution to our team is what makes us successful!

Every family MUST commit to volunteer in order for your child to compete on the swim team. Volunteers are a necessity for our meets to run efficiently and smoothly.

Families who do not comply with our volunteer rule will be assessed a $50 fee at the end of the season.

If you need to change your volunteer date/time, you are responsible for finding a replacement and informing Denelle Alexander @ 

When everyone helps out, we are all able to enjoy watching our children swim!  

Thank YOU!
