There is an additional requirement to volunteer if you have a swimmer who participates in Finals on August 3rd. This will be coordinated as Finals approaches. Also keep in mind that if you have not met the requirement of 6 untrained jobs/5 trained jobs for the regular season (after any swaps or changes have been made throughout the season), your swimmer may not be eligible to swim at Finals.
