2014 - 2015 Parent and Swimmer Handbook
Parents play an important part on our swim team. They support the Aquatics Director, Coaches and Swimmers.

We get our parents involved in Focus Groups, Fundraising (through apparel sales and concession stands) and planning fun events for our families.

If you want to know how you can get more involved contact the Aquatics Director at the YMCA.

Family involvement is critical to the success of the team. It is expected that all families will be involved by filling volunteer roles at all home swim meets. Most of the jobs require NO previous experience. If the location of the job does not allow a direct view of the pool, we encourage our volunteer parents to leave their posts to watch their swimmers swim their events.

How does volunteering work?

Each Volunteer Team has a leader and co-leader. In some situations we need more than two to lead a team. At the beginning of the season parents will receive a spreadsheet showing which area your family has been assigned. Before our swim meets start, we can adjust your assignment if you wish to try a new area.

Team leaders and co-leaders work with the volunteers on their teams and schedule them for each meet. They also schedule any meetings or training sessions, as needed. (Team leader positions are two year positions)

The goal of the leaders is to train parents to take over their spots in the future to maintain the consistency and quality of the program.
