MANDATORY FAMILY VOLUNTEER COMMITMENT
Regular Season Hosted Meets
All parents of Wheaton Swim Club are needed to fulfill volunteer responsibilities that support our meet operations. Parental commitment instills spirit and support, enriching the experience of the entire family.
All volunteer signups are done online and are first come first serve. In general for any home hosted meet, families are required to work 1 job per session their child is swimming but this number may change depending on how many swimmers attending meets.
Example: If swimming both Sat and Sun, then your family is required to work 2 jobs. If only swimming Sat. then your family is required to volunteer for 1 job. If you are responsible for 2 jobs, you can work one each day or both on the same day. If you have multiple children we ask you work at least 2 jobs if they are swimming all weekend.
If a family has swimmers participating and fails to volunteer, there will be $100 per shift assessed to their account after the conclusion of meet. This charge also includes if you pull your swimmer the week of the meet. We do not have extra volunteers and we then have to hire people to work. In addition, if we are short workers there may be a charge for any family who decides not to swim at our hosted meet as we have to hire people to work shifts.
ISI Assigned Hosted Meets
For any meets assigned to Wheaton Swim Club by ISI to host (Regionals, Age Group Champs or Senior Champs) families are required to work each session their child is swimming. If a family fails to volunteer or misses a shift, there will be $250 per shift assessed to their account about 1 week after the conclusion of meet.
**** For meets assigned by ISI for Wheaton to host, we will also ask all families of Wheaton Swim Club to volunteer. If families do not wish to volunteer there will be a buyout option. Option will be to help work or buyout.
Non Hosted Meets
Typically, meets hosted by other teams require visiting teams to supply timers. When this happens, we ask the Wheaton parents to please "step up" and volunteer. You can get together with other parents and share the job.
