Fundraising Requirements

It is the goal of the Stingray Swim Team coaches and volunteer board to provide parents with a clear understanding of what team season fees to expect and how raffle tickets sales, sponsorships and other fundraising opportunities help support our team. We have adopted a fundraising policy to help establish consistent and reliable ways to meet the team's financial obligations while keeping each families' obligation flexible and fair.

Each swimmer will have an annual fundraising obligation of $300. The team will provide two fundraising opportunities each year; a raffle in the fall (minimum $200) and a Swim-a-Thon (minimum $100) in the spring. Fundraising donations in any amount are tax deductible. Any additional fundraising and/or sponsorship ideas are welcome and encouraged.

Volunteer Hours

The Stingray Swim Team depends on each family to volunteer throughout the season in order to provide high quality services to our members. The minimum volunteer requirement per family is fifteen (15) hours per season from September 1 – August 31Volunteer requirements may be met during swim meets, team functions/events, and other essential non-event tasks. Non-event tasks include, but are not limited to, Board of Director participation and/or various committee participation.

Members shall utilize the website ‘job signup’ feature for event-related volunteer hours to be tracked. Non-event related volunteer hours (Board of Director participation and/or committee participation) shall be tracked by the team Volunteer Coordinator. All questions/comments/concerns shall be directed to the team Volunteer Coordinator. 

A penalty of $30 per unachieved volunteer hour shall be levied on August 31. Volunteer requirements and subsequent penalties will be prorated on a quarterly basis for members joining/leaving the team outside the September 1 through August 31 timeline.
