What Am I Required to Do??
We rely on our parent volunteers to help with meets, as well as with Team events. We DO NOT require you to do these things, but we STRONGLY encourage you to contribute. We ask that every family contribute 15 hours of volunteer time over the course of the season. This can mean working at a home meet, or contributing treats to team events. We have dozens of ways to help out.
In order to encourage you to help, we offer the chance to win a big prize at the end of the year. So...how does it work?? Once you complete your 15 hours, your name goes in for the prize. For every 2 hours of volunteer time you put in over that 15, your name goes in again. The more you volunteer, the better your odds of winning.
Volunteer opportunities are posted under the Job Sign-up tab next to each event. Typically, they are posted 1 week prior to the event. Emails will also go out reminding you to sign up.
Our Parents Board coordinates all social events, community service projects, and volunteer opportunities. The function of the Board is to provide parent support and fundraising for the Team. We organize volunteer support for swim meets, provide funds and materials for Team activities, and oversee the charitable activities of the Team. We provide opportunities for parent involvement, as well as being a source of information and support for parents, swimmers, and coaches.
The Board typically meets on the first Monday of each month. Meetings are held at the Y. Parents are welcome to bring questions or concerns before the Board during these meetings. Also, Board members can be contacted directly.
