Service Hour Requirements
What are service hours?
Swim meets are 100% volunteer run. This means that one person from every family volunteers at each of the meets, both home and away. Service Hour opportunities are available in two shifts at all meets. Time requirements vary depending on the type of job signed up for, but are approximately three hours long and change around event 40.
A Service Hour deposit check of $500 is required from each family. This is added to your account as a hold during registration. If you complete your shift requirements by the end of the season, we will release the funds. If you don’t sign or show up for shifts, we will capture that payment. Sign-ups will begin at the end of April, please watch for emails from the volunteer coordinators.
*We understand some families may have extenuating circumstances that prevent them from meeting this requirement, please speak (or email: [email protected]) with a board member for assistance with meeting your obligation.
How does it work?
Each family is required to sign up for a number of shifts determined each season dependent on registration number. The more families we have the fewer the shifts required!! Shifts can be split between parents, grandparents, or a high school aged sibling.
Starting with the 2023 season we will do signups in two rounds. First round each family will sign up for a maximum of three (3) shifts by a certain date/time. We will then close and verify that families only signed up for a maximum of 3. Once that verification is done, we will open up again to sign up for remining required shifts.
The morning of the meet, all volunteers are required to check in before the meet starts at the Service Hour check-in table. Training for each position will be provided when you show up to begin your shift.
Service Hour tracking will be kept on our website. The Area Supervisor in charge will approve your service hour time at the end of the day.
