Team Support Agreement

2020-2021

Objective:  The Team Support Agreement will provide clear expectations to Coast Guard Blue Dolphin?s families participating in our swim programs of the necessary requirements to operate this high quality non-profit swim team. 

While this support agreement outlines financial penalties of not adhering to these requirements, the goal of the Support Agreement is to distribute the needed support across all families and not to collect additional team revenues.   

Team Support is required in four broad categories:  Fundraising/Bingo, CGBD Meet Support, CGBD Other Event Support.
