A brief word on volunteering – it’s mandatory!  With over 200 swimmers and many meets and social activities crammed into our short & sweet season, we need the manpower of every family to keep everything running smoothly.

Upon reviewing the Sign-Up Genius lists we will notify the chair people in charge of volunteering areas (concessions, timing, ribbons, marshaling, etc…) to let them know who is signed up.  They will contact you before your volunteering event and give you further instructions.  Sign-Up Genius should also send you a reminder.  If you have a conflict, it is your responsibility to sign up somewhere else or contact us and we’ll assign you to another area in which to volunteer.

Remember to check in with the chairperson when you arrive to volunteer at a meet or social event.  We will have each meet/social event chairperson equipped with a sign-in sheet, whether you are timing, working concessions, marshaling, etc… We want to make certain that you are accounted for and there is no confusion.  Meets can get busy and crazy!  It will help both you and the coordinators if everyone knows where he/she is supposed to be and what time to begin volunteering.

If you simply cannot take the time to volunteer, you have the option of paying a “Lazy Fee” of $100 per family to opt out of your duties. We’ve made this fee especially high to discourage you from doing that – what we really want is your manpower and for your whole family to catch the Sun Devil spirit!
