The following rules apply for family jobs for the 2023 season:

 1.  Based upon the number of meets, every family will have the following job requirements:

  a.  Five (5) Meet Jobs

  b. One (1) Team Job

  c. One (1) City Meet Job, if your child is swimming  

  d. One (1) Conference Meet Job, if your child is swimming

2.  A limited number of job buy-outs will be available again this year - for a price you can be relieved of your Meet and Team job duties. Look for an email with information on the cost and number available.

3.  Job sign-ups open Monday, May 15 at 7:00pm.
***You will receive a separate email for Job registration with instructions***

4.  If you have not signed up for all your jobs by May 20th your swimmer will not be entered into meets until you do so.

5.  For the best selection of jobs and dates, plan to sign up as soon as possible when jobs open.

6.  Not attending a meet or being on vacation does not relieve you of your work responsibility.

7.  You may hire a sub for meet jobs. Subs must be 16 or older. If your sub doesn't show, you will be fined $75.

8. A list of substitutes may be found on the website under "jobs" after logging in. Substitutes may not work in any meet job that requires training. Snack shack substitues must for 18 or older. Only other Rudgear Rat parent/caretakers may sub for shepherding. Substitutes may not fill any Team/Social job.

9.  If you don't show for a job, the fine is $75. If you do not perform your Team Job, the fine is $150.

10.  If you are 15 minutes late or if you leave early, that is considered a no-show and you may be fined.

11.  Unless stated otherwise, shifts last the duration of the meet, even if the meet goes overtime. 

12. Rugrats and 15-18 families are not required to perform meet jobs or team jobs. However, 15-18 families are required to work special meets in which their swimmer participates.

13.  We try our best to be equitable. Questions should be directed to [email protected]

Thank you in advance to all of the parent volunteers - the RATS couldn't do it without you.
