What Am I Required to Do??

 

The only mandatory requirement we have for parents is a $25 contribution to fund our concession stand. This contribution is made at the beginning of the season.  It is only paid once.

However...

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 20 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.  Last year we gave away a $400 gift card to Great Wolf Lodge.  So...how does it work??  Once you complete your 20 hours, your name goes in for the prize.  For every 2 hours of volunteer time you put in over that 20, your name goes in again. The more you volunteer, the better your odds of winning.  Please remember that work done at meets not hosted by us do not count towards your volunteer hours.

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.
