Dunn Loring Swim and Dive Team

Dive Meet Volunteer Job Descriptions

This year we are using team unify for all the diver and volunteer sign ups.  Below are the types of jobs available.  

Table Workers: This is a job for someone who likes to work with numbers. A side benefit is you get a good seat and you meet people from other teams. There are several jobs at the table. Most jobs include adding and double-checking someone else's adding. Calculators are available. Easy on the job training provided. Time required: half a meet.

Meet Secretary: Lists all divers from both teams prior to meet. Records and tallies the scores of the meet while in progress. Works closely with ribbon writer. Time required: duration of meet

Ribbon Writer: Records scores on labels provided and attaches these to provided ribbons. Time required: duration of meet.

Judge: This gives you the best seat in the house! Judges watch each dive and give a corresponding score. There are 5 judges at each meet. The high and low score are tossed out and the middle 3 are used for the final score. This is not as scary as it sounds. Judges need to attain a basic training session; bring a friend!   It's free and fun and we'll keep practicing as the season progresses. As a new Judge we will start you out on the younger divers and move you up, as you feel comfortable. It's a great way to learn the sport and support your kids. Time required: half a meet.

Referee: This job requires additional training and should be attempted by someone whom has been a judge for at least a year. Referees insure rules are upheld. We will provide an experienced referee to co-referee with you at your first meet. The amenities include refreshments & gratitude. Time required: duration of meet.
