Work Requirements

 

Unlike many sports, swimming and diving are parent/volunteer run sports.  All meets and functions are run by our volunteers.  Our parents and volunteers are the heartbeat of our team!  We thank you for your support and your hard work to ensure that each swimmer and diver has an amazing experience!

 

  • The work requirement applies to all families.  If your swimmer or diver does not participate in meets,  the work requirement does still apply.  
  • Jobs are for the duration of the event unless specific shift times are specified.

 

Swim Meets, Dive Meets, Practice, Swim Prelims and Social Events

All families with a swimmer or diver on the Team must sign up for and complete three jobs.  
Families who only have a swimmer in Swim Academy must complete two jobs.

These can be any combination of swim meets, dive meets, practice, swim prelims, social events or other events that require volunteers.

If you work one job at a Swim Meet, Dive Meet, or Social/Other Event you will receive credit for one job worked.

If you work one job at Swim Prelims you will receive credit for two jobs worked.

Dive Conferences

If you have a child diving in Dive Conference, you must work at Dive Conference.  If you have children diving in both days of Dive Conference you only need to work one day. 

Sunset Hills is the host team for Dive Conferences and we appreciate your help and time to make sure this event is a success! 

 

Swim Finals

If you have a child that qualifies for Swim Finals, you must work at Swim Finals.

 

Jobs at Dive Conference and Swim Finals are in addition to the three job requirement.  If a family has participants in both Dive Conference and Swim Finals you will need to work at both Dive Conference and Swim Finals.

 

Would you like to fulfill your job requirement but work less?  

Swim Prelims jobs will be worth double credit.  

Work one job at Swim Prelims and receive credit for two jobs worked.  

Swim Prelims will be held @ Kirkwood

Team families - Complete one job at Swim Prelims and one more job at a Swim Meet, Dive Meet, Practice or Social Event and that would total three jobs worked.


 

Signing up for a job

To sign up for a job,  please click the “Job Signup” button next to the event you would like to work at.  Then choose your job from the list of jobs.  Please provide the name of the family member who will be working and contact number when signing up.


 

Failure to complete work requirements

Failure to complete work requirements will result in your credit card on file being charged up to $600 during the first week of August ($200 for each unfulfilled job requirement). If you do not pay swim team fees by credit card, you must write a check for $600 that will not be cashed unless you do not fulfill your work requirement.  If you satisfy your work requirement the check will be securely destroyed at the end of the season.
