NHCP Volunteer Commitment

NHCP Swim Club is a non-profit organization.  As such, volunteerism is critical to the financial success of our club. We typically host 2-3 swim meets each year. The net proceeds from the swim meets are built into our annual budget and help keep our swim dues competitive. Since we are a non-profit club, we rely entirely on our families and other volunteers to make our meets work! Running a meet requires MANY volunteers, so we need ALL families to participate in these efforts. 

The volunteer commitment varies by session and is based on the number of upcoming meets and other team activities each session. There are four sessions in one year: Fall and Winter sessions (Short Course Season) and Spring/Summer sessions (Long Course Season). Families who opt out of fulfilling their minimum volunteer requirement will be billed $250.00 per session the requirement is not fulfilled (volunteer hours do not carry over from one session to the next).

2021 Fall Session Commitment – We will be hosting a 2 day meet November 6-7th.  The job requirement is 2 jobs per family.

Important Points to Remember:

  • The volunteer commitment is a minimum. Additional events and activities do pop up and as they do, we will be looking for additional volunteers. These will be announced as they occur - don’t be shy about signing up for additional commitments!
  • Volunteer opportunities will be listed on the NHCP website on the Parents tab.
  • Notification of volunteer opportunities will be sent out via group e-mails.
  • Parents can sign-up on the NHCP website by selecting the 'job signup' link under each event on the Team Events page.
  • Volunteer check-in sheets are managed at events by the Volunteer Coordinator, the Meet Director, or Event Coordinator. Please check in on arrival.
  • If you cannot make your committed time, contact the Volunteer Coordinator or Meet/Event Director ASAP. 
  • If you have a special situation, please contact the volunteer coordinator directly.
  • The minimum volunteer requirement for each family resets each session, so volunteering above the minimum amount does not carry over.
  • All decisions regarding required commitments and fees under this program will be handled by the BOD.
  • Don’t forget – in addition to the basic volunteer commitment, the club has many additional expanded volunteer positions. These include for NHCP Officials, Committee Chairs, and Board positions! Please see Member Volunteer Policy & Guidelines Document
