2021 LTST Parent Jobs & Responsibilities

Parent Jobs are a critical component of our summer swim program. It takes many hands to make our social and spirit events fun and successful.  Thank you for showing your commitment to the LT community by being a helpful, reliable, punctual Seahorse parent.

 

We are very excited to get back to a more traditional style year, and with every swim season comes Parent Jobs! This year, each family will be responsible for signing up for 20 Job Points + 1 day of Coaches' Lunch
 
Due to the ongoing COVID19 situation, we have done our best to predict which jobs will be needed throughout the season. However, things are changing every day so there is a chance that the job you signed up for may be altered due to need. We thank you in advance for your flexibility to ensure we have a safe and fun swim season. 
 
Masks are required while performing ALL Parent Jobs. 
  • Each LTST family is responsible for signing up for 20 Job Points + providing lunch for our Coaches 1 time during the season.
  • Job preview day is Friday, May 7th.
  • Jobs will open at 8:00 am on Saturday, May 8th.
  • Jobs will close at 6:00 pm on Wednesday, May 12th.

The Parent Job Coordinators for the 2021 season are:

Sarah Graff - [email protected]

Dana Herman - [email protected]

 

Check In With Parent Job Coordinators

The 20-30 minute period before a swim meet or event starts is a very busy time.  It is imperative that Parent Job workers arrive for their assigned jobs at the scheduled time, and check in with the Job Coordinators upon arrival. This ensures that our meets and events can begin on time, in an organized fashion.  

 

Fines

A $75 fine is imposed for late arrival to a Parent Job.​  Fines must be paid before your swimmer will be entered into the next meet.

Fines are payable by check or PayPal to Las Trampas Swim Team, and coordinated by the team Treasurer, Marisa Lynn.

 

Parent Job Buyouts

There will be a limited number of Parent Job Buyouts available in 2021. Please email Sarah Graff and Dana Herman if you are interested in a Parent Job Buyout.

 

Substitutes

Substitute workers are not allowed in the Shepherd or Line Monitor positions. If you have subbed out a job, you are required to email Sarah Graff and Dana Herman at least 24 hours before the assigned job check-in time.

 

As always, families that only have Mudskipper/Developmental Seahorse swimmers, or only have 15-18 year old swimmers are NOT required to work Parent Jobs.

The job point requirement is subject to change based on total number of meets and the number of LT swim team families that register for the season.  

Star Jobs

There are some jobs on the swim team that require specific training, or work done behind the scenes. These “Star Job” positions are critical to the team. For the list of Star Jobs & Star Job Holders, please visit our Star Job page. Star Job holders do not perform Jobs toward a Job Point total, but do provide Coaches' Lunch & work Invitational Jobs if applicable.
