Parent Volunteer Information
It takes many volunteers to run a swim meet - around fifty when the Cyclones are at a home meet and thirty-five for away meets. There are usually well over 200 swimmers at a meet; most of them very young, so a lot of guidance is needed. All swim families are required to work volunteer ”shifts,” consisting of ½ of a swim meet. Your family will choose 4-5 “shifts” to work. This may seem like a lot, but you’ll notice that team leaders work every meet - 12 shifts - plus many hours behind the scenes!
Around the time of our first practices, you’ll receive directions via email on how to sign up for your shifts on our website.
It takes a village to run a successful swim team!!!
