Volunteer Points System (VPS)

Our Volunteer Point System (VPS) was put into place to encourage families to participate in club functions. Volunteers are needed in order for the swim club to be successful. Each swim level is assigned a certain number of points required as a part of your commitment to the club. Each level is also assigned a minimum amount of meet days at which the parents are required to help out. Each point is worth $30. By volunteering, you are not only being an important part of making your club great, you are also earning points! If you volunteer throughout the year and earn all of your points, your VPS obligation is fulfilled and your financial commitment is completed! Please read the complete policy in the Parent Handbook. All VPS and Fundraising owing is due by June 15th, 2022.

Mandatory Commitments for Swim Meets

Swim meet volunteering is now mandatory.  Orca Junior and Orca Groups must volunteer for 2 days of  swim meets; all other groups for 3 days.  If two family members volunteer on one day, that counts as 2 days of volunteering.  If your family does not meet the swim meet volunteering expectation there will be a $100.00 penalty.  We will no longer award VPS for bringing in deck food.


Timer and Stroke and Turn Judge Clinic attendants will be awarded points, however, you will receive your points AFTER volunteering for that job at a home meet.  For example, if you take the Stroke and Turn Judge Clinic and perform that job for 3 days of swim meets you will receive 8 VPS points. Mini meets and time trials will receive half of the allotted points per position. If the host club of the VIR Championship meet is requiring each club to provide volunteers, it will be mandatory for a parent to volunteer for a session if their swimmer is in the meet. You would earn VPS for volunteering at the VIR Championship but the VPS Coordinator must be advised that you volunteered, on what dates and in what role in order to receive credit. 


The Annual General Meeting we have in the Fall of each year will no longer have a VPS point attached to it.
