Building an inclusive environment wherein all athletes are challenged to be their best.​

Volunteer Points 


The success of a Swim Club is dependent on active parent involvement and participation. Each family with swimmers registered as Senior and Age Group will be required to earn a total of 200 Points (this is per family not per swimmer). Each family with swimmers registered as Future Olympians will be required to earn a total of 100 Points. These points must be earned in full by June 30th of each year. Plenty of opportunities to do so will be made available.


While there will be no dollar value attached to participation points earned in excess of the requirement, there will be a charge for falling short of the requirement. Families will owe SSAT $3.00 for every point not earned.

The Volunteer Points System is reviewed annually to ensure that total point requirements per family and point distributions per volunteer role are supporting the Club’s current needs and priorities. For example: Swim Canada requires that each Swim Club have a minimum number of Officials at specific levels. We are obligated to ensure the ongoing education and certification of Officials attached to the Sault Surge Aquatic Team and we have created incentives for certification via our volunteer points system.

ULTIMATELY, THE VOLUNTEER JOB FUNCTIONS OF THE POINT SYSTEM CREATE SAVINGS FOR THE CLUB AS MORE VOLUNTEER PARTICIPATION MEANS REDUCED EXPENSES FOR THE TEAM.
