Volunteers are the key to success of our swim team. Unlike other youth sports, where generally a handful of people can run the team, a swim program simply cannot be run without parental help and participation, and lots of it. It takes more than 100 individuals to set up, clean up, check in, officiate, line up kids, work snack bar, team store, time, write ribbons and enter and post results for a typical meet. Each year more than 15,000 volunteer hours are completed by the parents. 

Links to signups for Parent Duties will not be active until after Feb. 20
