Parent Volunteers

Parent volunteers could easily be considered the most most essential part of the Sherwood Sharks program.  The importance of parent volunteers cannot be over emphasized.  

Without parent volunteers the team cannot operate.  The ONLY paid positions on the Sherwood Sharks Swim Team are our Coaches.  All other positions are volunteer positions.  

The Parent Volunteer programs include:

  • Meet Volunteers:  Swim Meets are not possible without parents' help.  This season will require over 250 meet volunteer shifts!  Every family is REQUIRED to work at least four (4) shifts.  A shift is between 2-3 hours long, depending on the position.  All positions are easily learned and most do not require prior experience.  For specific meet volunteer positions, please check the Meet Volunteers tab under Parent Volunteers on this site.
  • Meet Setup & Breakdown:  If you are unable to work during the meet but want to help get ready for the meet, this might be the job for you.  For specific information, please check the Meet Setup tab under Parent Volunteers on this site.
