Volunteer Position & Requirements
Pacific Sands Penguins Swim Team meets and events are managed and executed by our Parent Volunteer System. Meets are divided into sessions and hours. You are required to sign-up for volunteer positions on the Penguin’s Team Unify web site prior to a swim meet or swim team event. The exact number of hours required of each participating family will be determined based on the total number of Pacific Sands Penguins team members who register for the upcoming season.
If you have not met your volunteer obligation by the end of the summer season, you will be fined $50.00 for each unfulfilled hour. All non-payments of such fines will be carried over to the following season. Any outstanding fines or fees incurred in the upcoming Pacific Sands Penguins Swim Team season must be paid prior to participating in the following year’s registration process or the registration may be denied.
It is the responsibility of the swim team member’s parent to check-in with the Volunteer Coordinator one (1) hour prior to the start of each meet to confirm that you will fulfill the job you signed up for online. Both first and second-half session volunteers must check-in before the start of the swim meet even if you are not scheduled to work until the second half of the meet, or you will be considered a "No Show", and a FINE of fifty dollar per hour ($50.00/hr) will be levied against your account for each unfilled position.
Please note that if your swimmer is invited to participate in either the League Relay Finals or League Championships or both, you will be expected to help fulfill the Pacific Sands Penguins Swim Team obligation to the League by signing up for a volunteer position at one or both of these meets. Any hours worked at either Relays and/or League Championships will be considered over and above your obligation to fulfill the expected 16 hour family volunteer commitment. These additional volunteer hours worked WILL NOT COUNT towards the fulfillment of your total volunteer hour requirement (To be determined based on total number of swim team families who register for the upcoming season). The Exception to this rule is when we are the host team.
