Volunteer Requirements

Our team relies on the support of our parents, and we all lean on each other during meets so everyone both parent and swimmer can have a positive experience.

In order for our team to host a swim meet, each family is required to volunteer in some way. The team volunteer commitment is 1 Seasonal Position or 5 Meet Shifts. Please note that a $100 check is required the first week of practice, which is held until the volunteer commitment is reached, then it is destroyed. 

Thank you for helping the team provide a great experience for our swimmers and their families.
