Parent Volunteer (This is Mandatory Section For All Families)

New Policy Change Parent Committee Policy -

If parents do not volunteer on committees, swimmers will not be eligible to compete in swim meets until the parents have fulfilled their volunteering obligation for their chosen committee.

Volunteer In Your Stead policy - Due to everyone having busy schedules and not always being available for team events, this policy allows families the ability to send a volunteer in their stead (this could be a grandparent, aunt, uncle, babysitter, etc). Thus, completing volunteer component for team participation requirement. All you need to do is notify the coaching staff with persons information.
