Results will be available (once verified) via lycswim.org or OnDeck.

Volunteers

Our team runs on volunteers and we won't start a meet until all positions are filled. Expect to volunteer at approximately 4 meets. If your family account does not have enough volunteer points, the swimmers may be pulled from future meet rosters.

Learn to sign-up for for volunteer positions through lycswim.org or OnDeck. Positions are available now for our Time Trial and the remainder will be posted June 1st.

    • Arrive at 4:30PM for home meets and 4:45PM for away meets
  • Find a meet or program, record your events, and keep track of the current event
  • DO NOT use Sharpie marker drawings on the swimmer's back as it will stain light colored deck furniture
  • Repect the other swim team and their facility
  • For away meets, find our "team area" and stay in this area unless you are swimming/cheering
