    Volunteer Summary By Family

    Volunteer Responsibilities/Information

    Swim Team is a fun and enjoyable experience where many valuable lessons can be learned both in and out of the pool. It is critical for the success of our season that you become just as dedicated as your son or daughter, stepping up to the block every day as an active member on our Swim Team. There are many responsibilities that parents must assume for our meets to run smoothly. Our volunteer coordinator & coaching staff will be asking each of you for your help more than once throughout the season.

    We want each of your children to have an exciting swim season and to grow as swimmers and teammates.

    As a member of the team, your family is required to volunteer. You will be able to sign-up for volunteer jobs prior to each meet or event. Each job will be worth 1 “point” and the number of points per family will be determined and announced once registration is complete. You will also be required to work one shift during the divisional championship meet (if you have a swimmer in the meet). All families will be responsible for a deposit of $350.00 either via check or online credit card hold. Checks will be returned voided or destroyed upon completion of volunteer work at the conclusion of the season.

    Volunteer sign up will open at 8:00 pm on the Sunday before each meet or event. You will be able to log in to the website and sign up for volunteer jobs at that time. We ask that families sign up for a maximum of 2 jobs per meet or 1 job per event so that everyone has a chance to sign up during the season.

    If you have any questions about volunteer opportunities, please don't hesitate to contact our volunteer coordinator at bbstvolunteer@swimcuda.com.
