Volunteer Requirements, New to the 2022-2030 season

Volunteer Requirement for Hosted Meets:  In order for a Bend Swim Club athlete to

compete at a Bend Swim Club hosted meet, a parent/guardian must volunteer during the session that their athlete is participating in.  If additional needs are identified in other sessions of that meet and their athlete’s session is full of volunteers, a parent/guardian must use those opportunities to ensure their athletes participation.  

If a parent has been assigned committee work by club management or is a

current board member, that family may opt out of volunteering during their athletes

session and/or meet. 

Becoming an official during your athletes session is the best way to support our athletes and the club.
