Team Support Agreement

2021-2022

Objective:  The Team Support Agreement will provide clear expectations to Coast Guard Blue Dolphins 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.   

(Note:  Parent Support requirements will now be referred to as Service Commitments)

Team Support is required in three broad categories:  Fundraising/Bingo, Service Commitments, and CGBD Other Event Support.

CGBD will host 7-10 short course meets, (two 8&U meets, 3-4 one day meets and 3-4 all age meets). 

CGBD will host 2-3 long course meets.

  • For hosted meets, positions will be filled by first come, first serve through the online sign up approximately one week prior to the meet start date. An announcement email will be sent through the official team email notification process used for all other correspondence and the team website will provide event reminders.
  • Some of the positions required during our hosted meets are: Announcer, Marshals, Head Timer, Timer, Runner, and Concessions. Click here to see more detailed job descriptions.
  • For non-hosted meets, when the host of the meet publishes timer requirements (usually a few days before the meet start date), a timer sign-up will be posted on our team website or Signup Genius. 
  • Our hosted meets are supported by other teams providing timers, and we must reciprocate this responsibility to uphold the excellent reputation CGBD has in the USA swimming community.
  • Worked service commitments will be updated following periodically and will be made available to families via the CGBD website. Failure to work the required number of commitments will result in a fee of $140 per missed commitment. Fees will be assessed and billed at the end of short and long course seasons.
  • The following positions will be exempt from the requirements to obtain Meet Support shifts: Apparel Lead and Lead Volunteer Coordinator.
  • In the event a meet or session is cancelled, the family signed up through the website will still receive credit for the commitment they would have earned during the session.  Adjustments made be made to requirements if meets are cancelled.
