Meet worker shifts for the fall/winter 2019/2020 meets will open on Saturday, September 14, 8:00 AM.

Express home meets are fundraisers for our team, and the only fundraising required of our families.  Volunteers are an important part of running a successful meet and a great way to become a part of the action and meet new families.  Below are the requirements for each family for the season.

New families are exempt from this requirement for their first six months with the team.

Click here for Volunteer Job Descriptions to learn more about the meet worker positions. 

Buy-out for Fall/Winter Meet Worker Shifts: $350.  If you don't buy-out by August 31, and don't work your shifts you will be charged $420 for not working at the end of the season (billed on 3/1).

We really want our families to get involved; it's a great way to meet other swim team families!  If you don't meet the required number of shifts and don't communicate your plans to work the shifts you will be charged $60 per shift on March 1, 2020.

Meet worker sign up for each meet is found by clicking on the Job Sign Up tab under each meet.  The meets are found under the Events/Meets tab.  You must be logged in first.

Details/Reminders:

  • The estimated requirement for Fall/Winter is 7 shifts per family.  If we have to make adjustments to this requirement we will let you know as soon as possible.
  • Families with high school swimmers: requirement is 5 shifts.  (If you have both a high school girl and high school boy you are responsible for the full 7 shifts since you have at least one swimmer with Express for the entire season.)
  • Fall only families, requirement is 4 shifts.
  • Winter only families, requirement is 4 shifts.
  • The shift times listed on the job sign up pages are estimates, we won't know our timelines until approximately 1 week prior to the meet start when entries are finalized.  Shift times will be updated at that time.
  • Please note that 1 full shift is equal to approximately 4 hours.  Any shift that is less than 3 hours in length will be counted as half a shift.
  • Please remember that new families are NOT required to work any meet worker shifts during the first six months with the team.  However you are welcome to get involved at anytime during your first six months.
  • Children ages 13 & up are allowed to work in most positions if they accompanied by a parent.  If you have questions about specifics please ask.
  • Officials will sign up with Blaine Carlson (blaine@waukeshaexpress.org).  Contact Blaine directly if you have not received communication from him to sign up for these meets as an official.
  • PLEASE do not sign up for any additional shifts above your requirement.
  • Note: You can cancel/adjust your meet worker shifts up until 2 weeks prior to the meet starting date.  Any cancellations within two weeks of the meet date will result in a $60 charge per shift, OR to avoid the charge you can find someone to switch with you or fill your shift.  You will need to notify Laurie Carlson of any changes so we know who to expect for your shift.
