    001 Dolphins Host 002 Sharks June 29, 2019

    Thanks for taking the time to volunteer!

    ** We promise any of the following jobs can be taught in just a few minutes so feel free to try out different jobs to see what you like the best by the end of the season.

    Volunteer Positions:

    ** Timer: Use stop watch. Sit at the end of the pool and time swimmers. Hits start on the watch when the light flashes on the starter. Hits stop on the watch when the swimmer first touches the wall. 1 of the timers will also record the time on a sheet by the swimmer's name. This person also makes sure that the right swimmer is ready to swim in the correct lane by asking them for their name if they do not know them already. This is easy, but you do need to pay attention. :)

    ** 1 of 3 Place Judges: Determines 1st, 2nd or 3rd place swimmers on side of pool.

    ** Ribbon Prep: Places time/name stickers on the correct color ribbon towards the end of the meet (the majority of the work can also be done at home over the weekend)

    ** Canteen: Work in the kitchen and sell refreshments during the meet. All profits go to the Dolphin Swim Team which helps us keep our costs low and buy necessary equipment if it breaks. The perfect position for the person who likes a little AC on a hot day.

    ** Heat Seater: Seat children in order for race, based on lane assignments shown on event slips. Please let us know if you are ready to tackle this fun/noisy job and we will find someone who can train you in very little time during practice. This is the best job for getting to know all your kids teammates.

    **Home Meet - Set-Up and Take Down: Clean up and straighten pool area before/after Saturday's meet. Put out/away chairs, canopies, flag poles, etc. Some heavy lifting may be required.

    **Kid Keeper: Keeps track of swimmers to make sure they get to the seating area in time for their races. You may also need to help walk our younger swimmers to the correct end of the pool and help place them in the correct lane.

    **Runner: Takes/picks up event slips from timers to scorers. We call it a runner, however, we walk. :)


    The following positions require more training. If interested, please speak to Myriam or Mindy and we will get you trained.

    Scorer: Determines official finish times. Generates final score on computer.

    Starter: Commences all races in a timely manner. This is the volunteer who asks swimmers to step up (or in the case of backstroke - swimmers in the water), take your mark, and then hits the beep noise. They also must stop the race for any false starts. This position is filled by a paid official at the championship meet who also acts as our stroke and turn judge.

    Stroke and Turn Judge: Determines if swimmers are performing correct stroke, kick, and turn. Disqualifies swimmers for violations. Must have knowledge of correct stroke, kick, and turn criteria.
