    Volunteer!

    Parents are required to provide a minimum of four volunteer points throughout the swim season, with at least two being earned at a swim meet. Please limit floater/donation volunteering to 2 points as well. Below are basic descriptions of the meet volunteer positions.  Parents are asked to either select volunteer responsibilities during the registration process or opt-out and pay the per-family fee (the opt-out is limited to a few families and may not be avialable when you register).  Additional volunteer positions can be added later by accessing individual events in the Team Calendar.

    All volunteer questions can be directed to Meg Greene, our volunteer coordinator.

    All Meets


    Clerk of Course Makes sure all swimmers are in their proper lane at the start of each race.

    Assistant Clerk of Course

    The Assistant Clerk of Course (ACC) plays a very important role in pre-seeded automatically timed meets. The ACC’s job is to keep track of any and all changes between the scheduled meet program as listed in the heat sheet (i.e., which athletes are supposed to swim in which lane of which heat of which event) and the actual meet program, as reflected by who really swam when and where. This information is essential for reconciling the timing data after the meet, to make sure that the right time is attributed to the right swimmer.

    The ACC goes about this job by working closely with the Clerks of Course from both teams. There is only one ACC, and he or she will have a heat sheet describing the entire meet, with entries from both teams. Any time there is a departure from the scheduled meet program, the ACC will need to mark up his or her heat sheet to reflect the changes. For this reason, it is important that the ACC meet with both Clerks before the meet so that everyone understands the ACC’s role. The Clerks are encouraged to let the ACC know as soon as possible about any departures from the originally scheduled meet program.

    Changes the ACC needs to track include: scratches, substitutions, collapsed heats, and walk-ons.
    Order of Finish Judge

    Identifies the order swimmers finish in during main heats. This serves as a back-up in case of a malfunction or error in the timing.

    Timer Times the swimmers from the start of their race until the end of their race and then records the swimmer's time on the heat sheets.
    Meet Administrator/
    Scorer

    Responsible for entering swimmers' times, place finish, and/or disqualification slip information into Meet Maestro during the swim meet. Personal computer or team computer may be used to do this job. This information is taken to the Announcer. Training will be provided.

    Ribbon Writer Records the swimmers' names of the main events on the ribbon they receive according to where they placed in the race.
    Stroke & Turn Judge Watches each race and determines if each swimmer does the fundamental strokes properly and touches the wall properly. Also makes sure there are no early starts in relay races. If necessary, will complete the DQ slips and hand them to a Runner. MUST ATTEND TSA STROKE & TURN CLINIC PRIOR TO SEASON.
    Kid Pusher Gathers all swimmers and puts them in their lane assignments before the start of each race. Sends the swimmers of each race to the Clerk of Course.
