Parents Participation

Parents participation not only demonstrates their interest to the swimmer but also provides parents with an excellent opportunity to learn more about the sport, enhancing their appreciation of their children’s efforts. At each meet there are specific jobs that parents are encouraged to volunteer for in order to help the meet run successfully.

At both home and away meets, each team is requested to provide a set number of “timers” (generally in proportion to the number of swimmers on the team). These are parents who will work the lanes with a partner and time the swimmers as they complete their events. Each parent is requested to volunteer at the meets. On occasion, volunteers will also be asked to work the scorers table to record swimmers times, tally points, and award the ribbons.

At meets conducted at home, parents will be asked to contribute food items to be sold at our bake sale tables. Volunteers will also be needed to sell food during the meet. A member of the parent committee will be coordinating these volunteer efforts. Please volunteer your services – all profits go back to our swimmers.

A list of Parents Committee members will be distributed at the beginning of each season. Please feel free to call any of these individuals, as well as any of the coaches, if you have a question about the swim team or any of the team events.
