Volunteer Sign-ups begin Wednesday, March 18 at 7p.m. and will remain open until Friday, March 27, 2020.

During this time, each family must sign up for Six (6) shifts (points) throughout Time Trials and the dual meet season, including at least one Timing shift. This does not include All-Stars and Champs, communicaiton about these all MSL team meets will come later in the season.

All families, regardless of participation in dual meets, are expected to fulfill this volunteer commitment. Fulfilling your family’s required volunteer shifts is essential to a smooth running season.

After the sign-up period closes on March 27, 2020, if your family has not signed up for any, or all required shifts, we will reach out to discuss open roles.

    • Shift 1 volunteer timing = Medley Relay through Backstroke.  May include pre meet set up.

Participation of every family is essential to the success of the season. However, if you choose to not fulfill the volunteer commitment to the team, you can pay a non-working fee of $450. Please note that the Non-Working Fee does not apply to the All Star and Championship meets. All families participating in the Champs meet must work a shift, and parents are expected to help out if their swimmer participates in the All Star meet.

If you have chosen to not fulfill your Volunteer commitment, please contact SVSS volunteer lead, Laura Spence, to arrange for payment when exercising this option.

**Families who have not signed up for all positions, or paid the non-working fee, will not be able to enter their swimmer to compete in dual meets until this is resolved.**

Any questions, please email the volunteer coordinators Laura Spence or Vyvianne Kiriakis or Chelseaa Bush
