Season-Long Volunteer Positions
We have positions that require a season-long commitment. Instead of signing up for these on a weekly basis you will contact the volunteer coordinator at email@example.com to express your interest. Many of these positions are better suited for swim team parents who are already familiar with swim team.
Team Photographer - 1 volunteer (u10 and 11-18). Will take pictures of the swimmers during the meets and practices.
Computer Room – 1 volunteer (u10 and 11-18). Computer Room Season Long volunteers will be a key member of the meet merge and day of meet operations. The volunteers would need to be comfortable with data entry and computer operations.
Head Timer – 1 volunteer (u10 and 11-18) – The Head Timer takes swimmers' times on multiple stop watches, which could be used only as a substitute in the event of failure of an Official Lane Timer's watch or its operator. The Head Timer is expected to lead a short timers and scribes meeting before the swim meet starts, typically around 8:00 a.m.
Ready Tent (Megaphone) – 1 volunteer (u10 and 11-18). The Ready Tent Megaphone volunteer will call swimmers to the ready tent and assist with getting them lined-up for the ready bench. The Megaphone role works directly with the DJ and Ready Tent Line Up lead to coordinate with the line walkers and other Ready Tent volunteers. A good knowledge of ALL the swimmers is very valuable for this role.
Ready Tent (Line Up) – 1 volunteer (u10 and 11-18). The Ready Tent Line Up volunteer will organize the swimmers into their specific heat and lane prior to the ready tent. The Line Up lead role works directly with the DJ and Ready Tent Megaphone lead to coordinate with the line walkers and other Ready Tent line up volunteers. A good knowledge of ALL the swimmers is very valuable for this role.
Ready Bench Leads – 2 volunteers (u10 and 11-18). The Ready Bench Leads ensure the Ready Bench operates smoothly throughout the meet. These roles work with the Ready Tent and the Line Walkers to ensure swimmers are in the correct heat and lane. The Leads will coordinate with the other Ready Bench volunteers from both swim teams to continue to move the swimmers from the chars to the blocks. Prior Ready Bench experience is very valuable for this role.
