Work Obligations and Money Matters

Parent participation is mandatory at all meets, time trails, and League Finals. If this obligation is not fulfilled it puts an unnecessary burden on the other families and your swimmer. We require a minimum of 20 hours of volunteer work at meets; there will be a $150 fee to any family that does not meet the parent work obligations during the 2019 season. Depending on the circumstances, a child may also be prohibited from swimming in meets or receiving awards if penalties or any other outstanding fees are left unpaid.  Please reach out to the Aquatics manager if there are any inquiries.

This does not include invitational meets or league finals.  Parents of all swimmers attending these meets are required to work at invitational meets and league finals.

Everyone working at a meet is expected to be prompt.  It can’t be stressed enough that your help is seriously needed to make the swim meets a good experience for all concerned.  Please be courteous and arrange for an alternate if you cannot work a meet you have signed up for.



TEAM NAME:  ClubSport San Ramon Marlins

TEAM COLORS:  Orange and Navy Blue

Note: Parents, please be aware that “ swim team ” does not mean “ swim lessons.” Parents have complained in the past that weaker swimmers who do not meet the intermediate standard require more attention from the coaches for safety reasons. Teen volunteers often help with the younger non swimming members who in time learn to maneuver their way up and down the lanes of the pool and eventually become swimmers themselves. If your swimmer(s) require quicker progress, then ClubSport San Ramon offers swim lessons. A coach may encourage your swimmer benefitting from more 1:1 instruction. Please speak with your coach on how to do so.

The intermediate standard is as followed:
Swimmers should be proficient in all 4 strokes; proficient means forward progress with the ability to swim comfortably the length of the pool, per stroke. Previous swim team experienced preferred but not required.
