A cheque for one hundred ($100) is collected in lieu of parent participation per Sea lions swim club family. This obligation is to encourage parents to volunteer for various duties throughout the swim season. The cheque is returned if the obligation is successfully completed.
Our summer swim club literally could not function without the generous work of parent volunteers. All the work of putting together a team of volunteers, keeping within a financial budget. Arranging schedules, providing information for parents, to actually conducting our swim meets is up to ALL OF US.
The peak times for volunteer are when we host our swim meets, 100% club participation is a must in order to run a swim meet. Each family is asked to help in a volunteer position at each swim meet. Be informed and learn which jobs are required to make our swim club a success. None of the jobs are difficult and simple training is provided as needed, but you can easily learn how to do most jobs in a few minutes. If you are brand new to summer swimming, the jobs of timer and runner are pretty good places to start. Other positions can be learned at clinics and through on the job training. One thing to remember, as a volunteer you will definitely feel a part of the team, and it actually makes the day go a lot faster.
