Family Participation Policy
The sport of swimming is unique due to the amount of volunteer hours required to successfully run a team. Our swim team is a 100% VOLUNTEER RUN organization.
2022 Volunteer Needs:
Red White- 56 volunteers
(while we reduce several jobs, we have to provide all the timers)
Home Meets- 56 volunteers
Away Meets- 32 Volunteers
The above are only the jobs we need you all to sign up for, it doesn’t include the 21 people who have set jobs at meets or those with ongoing season jobs.
320 Total Volunteer positions for all 7 Meets
Each family will need to work 4 shifts
When you register your kids for the swim team you are also committing to volunteer your time to help support the Killer Whales. We need everyone to contribute your time and energy to the required volunteer duties.
You will not be able to sign up for volunteer spots when you first register your swimmers. The number of shifts required will depend on the number of swimmers registered and will be determined when registration ends.
As a reminder, there is no “just practice” option and we encourage you to confirm your summer plans against the swim schedule to ensure you will be available to volunteer. If you are available for only a few meets, you will need to fulfill all your shifts during those meets.
We are here to help you find the right position to suit your strengths. It does NOT have to be stressful. Click here for a description of the jobs. If you are interested in a more niche job, have special swim team skills you would like to contribute, or interested in learning about potential volunteer points you can earn outside of swim meets please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you in advance for your support and for effort to make this a successful summer.
