We hope you enjoyed the pool this summer, and we look forward to seeing you back in Spring 2021!

No experience required!

Below are some simple–but crucial–jobs you can quickly learn on the spot to help out at our meets:

  • Concessions (pre-meet prep, cashier/clerk, grilling)
  • Timer
  • Heat Treat Runner
  • Ribbon labeling
  • Volunteer Check-In
  • Friday Donut delivery
  • Meet set-up
  • Meet clean-up

MEET SET-UP | 3 POINTS PER MEET | HOME MEETS ONLY

Train at the Duck Classic to set-up for our Home Meets. Rearrange the pool benches for meet formation, set up Coaches tables, Starter and Announcer tent, Meet Manager and Ribbon Labelling stations. Please plan to arrive by 4:30 PM. It Takes about 15 minutes to set up. Must have set up completed by 4:45 PM, before the bulk of the Visiting team arrives and it gets too crowded to easily move around the pool deck.

MEET ELECTRICAL SET-UP & TEAR-DOWN | 4 POINTS PER MEET | HOME MEETS ONLY

Train at the Duck Classic to safely and carefully set up our Event Board, Microphones, and Starter light. Ideally, also volunteer to put it away at the close of the meet so that one person is handling the expensive equipment. Please plan to arrive by 4:30 PM. It Takes about 15 minutes to set up. Must have set up completed by 4:45 PM, before the bulk of the Visiting team arrives and it gets too crowded to easily move around the pool deck.

MEET CLEAN-UP | 2 points per meet | Home Meets Only

Train at the Duck Classic so you know how to return the pool deck to social set up, where to move benches and tables, and how and where to neatly put away all of the swim team equipment so it’s ready for the next meet. Must remain at meet until the end to begin tear-down as meet finishes. Takes about 20 minutes to complete, and there’s usually willing hands to help you out.

8U BOY COORDINATORS | 4 POINTS PER ½ MEET SHIFT | HOME AND AWAY MEETS

Getting the 8 and under swimmers to their events on time is a job! Coordinators will get to know the swimmers by name, help find them and stage them for their events at home and away meets. Sign up for ½ meet sessions.
