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 $450 is required from each family. This check is not deposited - if you complete your shift requirements by the end of the season, we will return your check to you. If you don’t sign or show up for shifts, the check will then be deposited. Sign-ups will begin after onsite registration, 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 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. Shifts can be split between parents, grandparents, or a high school aged sibling.
You can sign up for all of your shifts the morning that Volunteer Sign up opens. It is recommended that you sign up early to get the shifts you are most interested in because they do go fast.
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.
